 The Cliffs Outdoors

The Cliffs Outdoors offers exciting opportunities to climb and learn climbing skills in the greatest classroom possible: the great outdoors!

Get the skills you need to become an outdoor climber. All Cliffs Outdoors classes take place at the crag and are taught by AMGA-certified guides.


Our outdoor classes take place at the world-renowned climbing destination, the Shawangunk Ridge, affectionately called β€œThe Gunks.” The Gunks are located near New Paltz, NY, which is accessible by car, Metro North train (Poughkeepsie line), or bus. From New Paltz, jump in a Taxi or car share service to reach the trailhead.

All classes meet at the West Trapps Parking Lot at 9AM.

The Cliffs Outdoors operates in partnership with Golden State Guiding, Advanced Rockcraft, and Big City Mountain Guides.
