Minty - Multi-pitch Rock Climbing

Minty (5.4) 230 feet, 3 pitches The Gunks (Shawangunks) Mohonk Preserve, NY
What a difference a year makes! Although that day a year ago wasn’t what I expected, it was a day that I would never forget. And will try not to repeat! So when Geoff and Jeff invited me to tag along for a day at the Gunks, I was skeptical. But I had been ice and rock climbing with them for several months now, so I felt comfortable seconding them. As expected, it was crowded and as the day wore on, the popular routes had queues! Enjoy some photos of our day at the Gunks.

My turn!
At the belay ledge I found an old piton in addition to my anchor

My turn! This section up the face is so sweet, but short!

After a few minutes of searching, we found the tree on the GTLedge (which already had slings and a rap ring) to rap down on (3).
