Climber on Pete's Farewell (MtnPrj)

Join us for 4 days of fun, sun, and climbing!  Come to PATC-MS's annual 4th of July gathering!  This year we'll be again heading north to the Adirondacks, NY.  Normally we think of this place for the fantastic ice climbing in winter, but there is a wide variety of great rock climbing in the Dacks (mostly trad, but some sport, top-roping and bouldering as well).


WHERE: Adirondack Park near Keene, NY - about an 8 hour drive from DC.

The Club will cover camping at Draper's Acres near Lake Placid, NY. 

Check out the climbing info on Mountain Project:
