72nd St. near the Hudson

Description 

Although limited there is some good bouldering to be found in and around the numerous parks in NYC. Just being outdoors in one of the numerous parks in the city feels good, but being outdoors with climbing shoes and chalk bag feels way better.


Getting There 

From almost any airport in the world, fly to JFK, Newark or LaGuardia, and follow all the people into Manhattan.

Fancy Feast V4 6B  NY : New York City : ... : Cat Rock
Haven't done this one yet, so going by the guidebook description. This is also known as The Pinch Problem.Start with your left hand on a small, left-facing, lieback hold, which is nearly 6' above the ground and 5' right of the obtuse arete at the left end. Your right hand goes on a crimp to the right. The first move is to place the right hand on the pinch hold at the short and very rightmost vertical seam. Take the direct line to the lowest top-out without using the sloping shelf to the left....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
