Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
Colorado, Wolverine, 2018, first edition. 224 pages, 300+ color route and action photos. Maps. Softcover. New.

A new modern full color guidebook to bouldering at one of the greatest, oldest and most legendary rock climbing areas in America, and only two hours north of New York City. 

Gunks Bouldering! This is New York City climbers’ favorite place to play, and Andy Salo and Hillary Guzik have done a spectacular job of presenting it. Just outside the lively town of New Paltz, two hours from New York City, lie the historic rocks of the Shawangunks, ground zero for countless dedicated climbers. There’s great (and famous) roped climbing at the Gunks, but the bouldering here also rocks. 

With easy access and a decades-long parade of climbing’s who’s who passing through, the bouldering here has deep roots, with classic blocs dating back 50 years. Many problems rise directly from carriage roads that provide casual approaches — and perfectly flat landings. This is the definitive bouldering guide to the region, brought to you by the core local team that created the well-known Gunks Apps.

Areas covered in Gunks Bouldering
Trapps – 22 areas
Near Trapps – 5 areas
Peter’s Kill – 9 areas
Over 600 problems in all

Featuring
Durable, sewn binding
Clear and detailed maps of the boulder fields
Photos of pretty much every boulder

Full bouldering history complete with funky old photos
Sweet action shots from over 30 photographers
Full “climber’s pick” restaurant guide to New Paltz
Lodging and rest-day recommendations

About the authors
Andy Salo has bouldered the Gunks since the late 1990s. In addition to opening many fine, hard problems, Andy’s proudest contribution to the guidebook is the unearthing of all the old history of Peter’s Kill and Trapps bouldering. After completing of this book, he turned his attention to documenting Gunks roped routes. 

Hillary Guzik is a microscopist, entomologist, and photographer, and has been climbing around the Gunks since 2009. Her proudest contribution to the guidebook was making sure all of her favorite V0’s made it in. Her favorite Gunks climbs include Tweaky Crack (V3) and Baby Problem (V0) in the Trapps, and Won’t You? (V1) in Peter’s Kill.
