Have you ever wanted to try a new outdoor activity but did not have the equipment you needed to try it? Specialized equipment can be expensive, so consider renting.

Our Chapter owns the following equipment, which is available to rent:

4 pairs
Crampons are necessary equipment for winter hikes in the Catskills and Adirondacks to traverse ice that is frequently found on trails.
2 pairs
Microspikes are increasingly viewed as necessary equipment for late fall / early winter / early spring when snow or ice conditions make snowshoes and crampons poor tools of travel, yet bare booting becomes precarious.

Rental fee: $5.00 for each 7-day period.
