Climbing in the Gunks
Eight cadets headed out to Shawangunk ridge for a day of climbing recently. Despite harsh conditions the team set up five top ropes getting first time climber Shane Hickman '22 some outdoor experience. When the weather took a turn for the worst the team took advantage of the situation and had a workshop of placing gear and making anchors. The mountaineering team included: Jared Ells '19, Angela Martone '19, Ian Navarro ’20, Christian Witkop ’21, Gerrit Rummel '21, Zach Lindsay ’21, Justin Gittemeier ’21, Shane Hickman '22, and Mitch Gilley ’22.
