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.

Beta for Squash the Slug

Squash the Slug V1 5  NY : New York City : ... : Worthless Boulder
