We were the people you hate at the cliff

Yes, we were loud, we hung top ropes everywhere and we never moved. Yeah, we were the people that you hate climbing next to.

Mitch and I went to Peterskill with some friends who are very familiar with the area. Since they limit the number of climbers at Peterskill, we arrived as they opened. The parking lot was already 1/2 full, but, we didn't see a lot of climbers.

We hiked into the cliff and Pete and Mitch went to set TRs from the top. There was another group setting up top ropes as well. They had several ropes among them and we decided to join forces and take over the whole area. We had ropes set up on Golden Dreams 9+, Fickle Fingers 10B, Skinky American 9, Slot Machine 6 and Skink 6-8, very height dependent.


The climbing was fun, although I would have been better off leading rather than TRing. With each passing day and the summer drawing to a close I fear that I will not meet my trad climbing objectives. Truth is, I should have lead Golden Dreams. It's a g-rated 9+, great gear the entire way up.

We didn't get out of bed until noon today. We figured it was too late for us to climb (we had to head home by 5) so rather than climb we went skydiving at the Ranch. Although we did not have a reservation we were able to walk in and jump within 45 minutes. Turns out it was the Ranch's 30th anniversiary and they were running 3 planes. We had a ton of fun.

Still looking for a climbing partner in Red Rocks...anyone game?
