The Daily Freeman reports a roped climber was was bitten by a snake in the Trapps Cliff area of the Mohonk Preserve in the Shawangunks.

The snake was not poisonous although the 61-year-old climber was taken to a hospital. A 60-year-old woman was bitten by a copperhead 2 weeks ago in the same area.
