Black Chasm (5/1-2)
Almost two thousand feet deep from the valley floor to its head and is cut by a river that falls over a dozen named waterfalls, incredibly steep and rugged Black Chasm was gouged out of the Catskill Escarpment by glaciers. This trip is without equal, simply because it is unique terrain in the Catskills. We’ll be exploring this canyon off-trail, traversing very steep terrain and crossing a major river at least once. The reward is a backcountry camp well tucked away in a secret side clove and some of the most amazing waterfalls in the Catskills in prime waterfall season
Cardio Intensity: Challenging.
Terrain: Primarily off-trail. Very steep, with multiple scrambling sections that require using hands for balance. At least one major water crossing.
