Redefining Balance, who organizes retreats combining yoga, slacklining, rock climbing, surfing and other outdoor adventures in a variety of locations around the world, will donate 5% of the proceeds of their recent New Paltz retreat to the Gunks Climbers' Coalition.
The GCC has been working with the Mohonk Preserve to place bolted rappel stations that help save trees, improve safety, and preserve the traditional climbing ethic. Nine new anchors were approved and installed this week.
The GCC has been busy replacing dangerous old anchors at the Gunks. The Sixish anchor was found to have rotted, rusty pins, and Outer Space Direct had a complicated mess of old tat for an anchor. They have now been replaced with new, safer equipment.
