We did not do a clinic this past Saturday due to the wet and windy but Silas said he'd be willing to do one at some point between teaching an alpine guides course, guiding in the Tetons for Exum and working in the Dolomites... Hopefully we'll be able to come up with a date towards the end of June that works; Silas is a consumate guide and instructor and I feel being able to have him do a clinic here in the Gunks would be awesome.

Speaking of awesome; AMGA certified Rock Guide Ryan Stefiuk will be doing a clinic on June 8th. Ryan is psyched to talk with climbers about knots and hitches and correct application; what to use when.

We'll also look to go over tips on basic anchor building skills for folks interested in that.

See you soon, Joe.
