In response to a Peter’s Kill climbing survey conducted by GCC Director-at-Large Bob O’Brien (Minnewaska’s Invasive Species Specialist), the park has recognized requests by frequent visitors of the climbing community for a season pass. Eric Humphries, Minnewaska’s new Superintendent, has issued the 2007 policy as follows:



The Peter’s Kill Season Pass is $65 per individual and is valid for climbing/bouldering. The weekday/weekend day climbing pass remains $7. The pass is valid from April 1st to December 15th, weather permitting. The Peter’s Kill Season Pass does not waive vehicle use fees at the other park entrances, and is valid only at the Peter’s Kill Area. Pass holder must present valid photo ID at check in. The Season Pass is Not Transferable and Non-Refundable. Pass Holder Must follow all park rules and regulations. Pass Holder will only be allowed entry if the climbing area has not reached the maximum number of permitted climbing/bouldering permits. For further information please contact the Minnewaska Park Preserve Office at 845-255-0752.



New also to this year’s Peter’s Kill climbing policy: climbers will be requested to check-out upon departure. Previously, once the maximum number of climbing visitors was reached, no further passes were issued. Check-out monitoring will allow the Peter’s Kill office to sustain the maximum number of climbing visitors during peak hours: 70 climbers and 30 boulderers.



The GCC wishes to thank Bob O’Brien, Superintendent Humphries, and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission for accommodating the climbing community’s request for a season pass at Peter’s Kill.

Good a season pass if being offered (if you're an early riser)

Now if we could only get the Palisades Interstate Park Commission to open up the Palisades, we'll be getting somewhere.

Here we go where? The PIPC has a very large resource of cliffs suitable for climbing. Its public land, so why wouldn't we continue to ask and argue for allowing climbing?

If it were Skytop they I would roll my eyes....
