Climbing is a gear-intensive sport and we rely on it constantly for our comfort and safety. This is why we need to select the best equipment from the best companies and from the best shops.

We believe Black Diamond Equipment, Ltd manufactures THE BEST climbing gear available. We use as much of it as possible for the equipment we use personally as well as for our guests.

To cover our backs (and the rest of our bodies) we put our trust in Outdoor Research, offering the latest innovations and materials in their outerwear.

We rely on Rock & Snow for our needs and the needs of our guests. They are always well stocked and have employees who are avid users of the specialty equipment they sell. The friendly, expert advice you get from these guys will save you more than the $$$ you might think you're saving by buying gear at some chain store, or worse - a web discounter.

They are not only competitively priced (and have price match policies), but they are always supporting the areas we all love to visit, so please consider them first for all your outdoor needs.

Owned and operated by hard-core climbers, this is the shop in the East to get all your climbing hardware. They have the largest selection of harnesses, carabiners, ice tools, rock shoes, etc. They also have a great supply of rental equipment such as rock shoes, helmets, plastic boots, crampons, ice tools, and x/c skis.

This is where we meet our guests for the courses we run in the Gunks and Catskills. For directions please refer to our downloads page.
