Detailed Product Description
Colorado, Wolverine, 2021, 1st edition. 468 pages, 600 routes described, 700+ color route photos and action photos. A brand new rock climbing guidebook to The Shawangunks, one of America's oldest and most legendary climbing areas, just two hours north of New York City.

This is the sixteenth guidebook for the Gunks since 1964, and is the first modern guidebook with fabulous color photos on every page, many full page, and often multiple photos on a page. It has a terrific section on the history of climbing at the Gunks, and short memoirs by ten old time Gunks climbers, including Lynn Hill, Dick Williams, Rich Gottlieb, Rich Goldstone and Rich Romano, and others.  

If you are an active Gunks climber, and even if you use the App written by these same three Gunks guides, and certainly if you climbed there during it's golden age of the 1960s - 1980s, you should have a hard copy of this massively researched new book. Published by Wolverine Press who has taken over from where Chockstone Press left off, in putting out state of the art American rock climbing guidebooks. 

The Shawangunks the Gunks to most of us is one of the oldest climbing areas in the US, with a storied history dating back to the 1930s. Located 80 miles north of New York City, it has long been a focal point of rock-climbing culture, and remains a traditional climbers paradise. This new book has been throughly researched with the authors re-climbing almost every route, taking new color photos of the mile long Trapps cliff from a helicopter, plus the smaller cliffs. 

There is no shortage of very difficult routes that will challenge the best climbers, but the Gunks is even more famous for its incredible easier climbs. You could spend several seasons exploring made-to-climb cracks, faces, overhangs, and dihedrals without ever venturing beyond the 5.7 grade! Multi-pitch outings abound, and the graded carriage road at the base of the cliffs allows easy strolls to even the most distant ends of the cliff.

This new for 2021 full-color, ruthlessly researched guide represents the next generation of Gunks guidebooks. It covers over 600 routes at the two main cliffs: the Trapps and Near Trapps. Cliff base photos get you quickly oriented on the ground, and high-resolution aerial images show key features on routes. Detailed area and route descriptions help you find just the right flavor of climb. Youll spend less time searching, and more time pulling overhangs, plugging cams, and chasing your own piece of history.

Authors

Andy Salo grew up outside Rochester, New York, and began climbing at age 14. He first visited the Gunks soon after, and moved there full time in 2004. Andys hard Gunks first ascents are local lore, including Brozone (5.14a), Over the Moon (5.13c), Fire Gild (5.13c R), Corkscrew Roof (V12), Chaotic Stability (V10), and Ideas Are Bulletproof (V10). Having recently relocated to Burlington, VT, hes super proud of this project and is forever grateful to the Gunks. He is also author of Gunks Bouldering.

Christian Fracchia grew up in Glens Falls, New York. A lifelong climber with 36 years of Gunks experience, he spent his formative years climbing rock and ice in the Gunks, Catskills, Adirondacks, and White Mountains before settling in New Paltz in 2000. A high-school physics teacher, Christian has also devoted his summers to climbing around the world, most recently spending his time in the Dolomites of Italy. He is the author and creator of Gunks Apps. His notable Gunks first ascents include The Zoomulator (5.12a), Word of Mouth (5.12b), Indiana Jones (5.12a X), Future Shock Direct (5.12c R/X) in the Trapps, and The Past Recaptured (5.12a), at Millbrook, his favorite Gunks cliff.

Eric Ratkowski  is an architect and designer by education. He grew up in Detroit, Michigan, and has climbed in the Gunks for 14 years, guiding professionally for 6 of those. His community contributions include editing for the AACs Accidents in North American Climbing and working as a ranger at the Mohonk Preserve. Eric has climbed in eight countries and four continents. Hes climbed and guided at a hundred different areas in the United States, and claims to have never climbed anything of note.
