Guidebook


The Near Trapps, or Nears, is the second most popular climbing cliff located along the Shawangunk or 'Gunks' Ridge. The approach and descent are easy, and this area doesn't draw the same crowds as the Trapps. It hosts trad routes from 5.3 through 5.13. This app describes the best routes, link-ups, and variations found on this spectacular cliff. All of the climbing routes described in this guide are on land owned and managed by the Mohonk Preserve, a nonprofit nature preserve. The mission of the Mohonk Preserve is to protect the Shawangunk Mountains region and inspire people to care for, enjoy, and explore their natural world.
