Best Climbing Experience
Up there has to be climbing High Exposure at the Gunks. It was a Friday evening after heavy rain Thursday night. That seemed to have put everyone else off going because the entire area (and that's a big area) was deserted, but the rock was dry. The sky was dark and ominous throughout and we could see (and hear!) thunderstorms rolling around on the plains below, but they missed us. All very atmospheric! (Arriving at the top of the climb, I was also presented with one of the best comedy belays I've seen: two small shrubs, equalised.)
