Mountain Skills Climbing Guides are true Gunkies: we live locally and climb daily in our beloved Shawangunk's and Catskill Mountains.

We respect the environment by following and teaching the Leave No Trace Trainers Courses, actively support efforts to open more climbing opportunities in Minnewaska State Park Preserve by participating in rare plant and animal studies, sponsor DOT Adopt-A-Highway projects, maintain trails in our area through the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, volunteer for the Hudson Valley Mountain Rescue Squad, and train yearly with NYS DEC and Mohonk Preserve rangers on High Angle Rescue.

In addition, we believe education for our guides is paramount and regard certification to be the best way to achieve our goals as a guide service. We also hold regular training for our guides to keep us all up-to-date on new methods for efficiency, client management, and client care, all in order to ensure that we are providing you a memorable and enjoyable experience!
