I've climbed when I was younger and I want to get back into it. I have some gear (ropes, harnesses, carabiners, quick draws, stoppers, etc.) but I don't have anyone to climb with. I'm looking for someone to tackle some easier climbs with in the Catskill region or the Gunks. Just looking to have some fun and learn some new stuff. I've top roped before but I want to get into some sport and trad climbing as well. I'm 19.

Do you know of sport climbing in that area? I'm only vaguely aware of the Gunks as a trad only area. Am I mistaken?

I'm not 100% positive. I've never been there, when I climbed years ago it was in connecticut with a friend up there. You could be right
