Conditions / Peregrine falcon closings at Rumney?
« Last post by Nick Grant on Yesterday at 02:39:21 PM »
Due to injury, I haven't been out yet this season.  Are there any Rumney crags currently closed because of peregrine falcons nesting?  Thanks.

A group of us were out there this past Wednesday and quite a few enjoyed Life of Brian! I got on 5 other climbs there but didn't get a lap on this one which looks really fun. That hold is so recognizable from the ground! Forgot what a fun little crag this place is and will be back again soon!
Gear Exchange / 1995 VW Eurovan Camper for sale - Gunks onsite sale

We will be sadly selling our pop-up camper and will be in the Gunks with it June 27-30.  If you are interested in learning more you my email or PM me.  Will sell to the highest bidder if there is that much interest while we are there.  Can arrange for you to see it either in a Preserve parking lot or we will be at the AAC Campground.

I posted more details on this earlier on the Gear Exchange forum if you would like to review the details. We have drastically dropped the price to $12,500.

At the top of the 2nd pitch of Beginner's Right Hand or as I have always called it Beginner's Easy, The cord (anchor with rappelling rings) wrapped around the large pine is tied with a fisherman's knot but one of the tails is only a 1/4 inch ,of good cord, long. I did not have anything large enough to wrap around the tree or we would have replaced it. It was snug enough and did not seem to creep when loaded but should have a longer tail none the less.
Thought that people should be made aware of this before they climb the route. Easy enough to wrap your rope around the tree if you have any concern.

Lots of new routes, rediscovered and cleaned up stuff. They were still scrubbing and bolting just prior to being sent to the printer. Once the buffalo corral gets discovered the parking lot wall will be empty :D. Looking forward to this newest guide, Rumney has changed so much since 1990.
