Tea Town Lake Boulders 

This is a really beautiful spot in Westchester County, New York. Right outside the Nature Center of Tea Town, finding all of the many spots requires only to walk around the path next to the lake. There are about 6 little areas and one huge one that will last us a couple weeks. It is generally shady because of tree cover, and can be wet on a rainy day, but the rock dries surprisingly fast. It is never crowded due to the fact that I don't think anyone has climbed here before. There are two varieties of rock here. There is a grippy rock that is good on your hands, and a sharp, slippery granite. Don't use a lot of chalk, please. A lot of people who aren't climbers go here and they don't like white rocks. My friend Dan also works there and doesn't want to get fired. There is a ton of possibility for this area, and nearly every thing you do that I don't have written here is an FA.

Getting There

The approach is very short. Just walk around the lake, sometimes up the bank to find more secluded boulders.

Project. This is to the right of the crag, starting on obvious, clean flakes with smears for feet. Then to the undercling, where holds stop. Then smear your feet on any feature you can find to the point where you can reach a three finger incut nubbin. Don't lose your head here. Look to your left at two good sized crimps. Fly out to them, find your feet, and lug yourself over the ledge at about 15 ft. Finish up on the meditation ledge. Scary....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
