About the trip


  • Learn new climbing skills and techniques
  • Feel confidence as you take on new routes

  • Talk about climbing safety and risk management

  • Have a great day with new friends


The Shawangunks are legendary for their rock climbing. With routes that are fun for every level of climber, they welcome both old pros and first-timers alike. Today, we welcome the women of our community to the rock, where you'll be led by some of the top female guides in the area for a day of climbing during this Women in the Outdoors Week event.

Your guides will show you the basics of outdoor rock climbing from knots to techqnique and equipment and will help to ensure you're safely belayed as you take on a variety of a single pitch routes. Today is all about working together, asking questions, and making new friends during your outdoor adventure before heading back home fulfilled, exhausted, and ready for more.

Climbing shoes, harnesses, and helmets are all provided though you're also welcome to bring your own if you'd prefer.

This trip is open to women only.
