Special announcement at the party by the Mohonk Preserve about access to the Rosendale Waterworks.

Volunteer to help and get in for free! Contact
Any amount you can donate will be valuable to this fund.

For nearly six years, the Mohonk Preserve and the Gunks Climbers Coalition have worked in conjunction with OSI and the Town of Rosendale to secure the purchase, transfer and access to one of the Gunks most revered areas. The Waterworks Boulders, 175 acres with world class bouldering and cliffs with potential climbing routes of all grades. It finally seems that access is truly going to come to fruition soon enough, but your help is still needed. While the land purchase has been arranged, the management costs have not. And this is where the good of the people comes in.

On May 22nd, the Gunks Climbers Coalition will host a fundraiser party at the beautiful Williams Lake Property, 424 Williams Lake Rd, in Rosendale, NY. The event will go down from 6pm till 10pm and will feature videos from Big Up Productions, Bass For Your Face, and feature a live DJ set by Mon Voyage Neon. $25 will get you into the event as well as food, a couple of drinks, tons of raffle prizes, and the opportunity to help open a beautiful climbing area. Participation is limited to 500 people, so get there early. Last, but certainly not least, be there to be the first to hear a special announcement by the Mohonk Preserve about the future of the access to the Waterworks area. Surely not an event to miss, but if you would like to help the cause whether or not you can attend, please visit the Gunks Climbers Coalition page for info on how you can donate to the Waterworks Project.

The management were kind enough to allow the GCC and Bass For Your Face a day to shoot promotional media with which to share to the public. These images surely don't do the area justice, but they at least give a scope of what possibilities there are at the Waterworks zone. Note that Waterworks is NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AT THIS TIME. But with your help, it soon will be! Want to see what's there? Check out this video by Bass For Your Face and photographs by France Menk and Jannette Pazer.

For those of you who were at the party - would love to hear your comments. What did you think? How was the food? Drinks? Entertainment? Prizes?

If you couldn't make it to the party, you can still help out. We have a donation button set up to direct contributions to the Rosendale Waterworks fund. Go to and click on Donations. You can pay via credit card using paypal from there. The goal is high, we still need more funds to help pay for operational costs of the Waterworks Area.

Thanks to everyone who came out and partied with us, for all those who have helped and contributed to the cause, and for all those who donated to the party. A list of major donors and corporate sponsors is listed here: These businesses and companies are supporting the Gunks climbing community, I urge you to reciprocate and support these businesses and thank them for their help.
