Comments: Thanks for posting this guys. I knew I was going to be driving through and I knew I couldn't pass up wandering through central park. The little description y'all gave enabled me to find this within 25 minutes of driving into manhattan for the first time.

A few attempts and a couple falls from the top of the arete problem finally got me up. :)

Comments: The swamps fall colors are dwindling and everything still seems to be underwater (as of wednesday of last week). I scoped out the overhangs and they were still swimming in at least six feet of water. I might check it out this weekend with my mtn bike, but without any high hopes.

Either way, october's a beautiful month for the swamp.

Comments: Does anyone have any info on the small bouldering problem that starts under (beneath the overhang at the ground) the 5.6 in the redbird area? (this is the face that peaks outward about 30ft south of the main redbird wall - black and white steaked routes, etc)

It's pretty difficult to spot with all of the rocks beneath it, but well worth it for the fun moves (especially the start). Probably in the range of V3 PG13.

Comments: Instead of traversing around the overhang, try the direct. Not sure what should be considered on or off, but it's of comparable difficulty (a couple V0,V1 moves) and a bit of fun.

Comments: Andrew - What bad ass videos! Laughed muh ass off through the extraction of the bees in the pocket of pain video (and got a kick out of the dino-ish start) ... and, I'm surprised how well the two videos did the place justice. NOICE.

Hope to run into you all out there sometime soon!

Comments: I have run into a single cop (last summer). We explained we were just doing low traverses and he was okay with it ... So, no worries if you're just there to traverse.

Trying to see how many laps I could do really got me into a somewhat respectable climbing shape. If you're a beginner/looking to just pump yourself out - This place is entirely worthwhile. I usually stuck to the northern pillar (southern can be a little on the dirty side and less sunlight in the afternoon)

Comments: Anyone find a green (with some sort of pattern) chalk bag out there?

I'm not forgetful when it comes to trash, but when it comes to important things like my flashlight (long, skinny maglite), pocket knife (red swiss), and my chalk bag - I'm really spacey.

If anyone found it, please let me know. Thanks!

Comments: Definitely agree with chad - If you stay away from the dihedral and up the middle of the face - it's in the 5.10 range. (For me and my shuffling feet anyway. heh)
