On June 28th, our group met at RockSport at 8:30 am, sorted gear, and headed over to Stewart’s Ledges on Buck Mountain on the East shore of Lake George.
Accompanying Joel and Doc, two professional RockSport guides, were five novice climbers: Tom Schwarts, Dillon Kovacs, Alex Wakeman, Alan Spadafora and me.
At the top, we learned anchor building techniques and safety, and rappelling. Eventually we got to try some top-rope sport climbing.
RockSport: $300 for all of it … shoe, harness and chalkbag rentals, two guides and a day of climbing instruction for five newbies. Not a bad deal.
