Description

Central park is a jewel within New York City, and although not a primary destination for climbers, scattered throughout its 843 acres are a series of small outcrops, that present the boulderer with an opportunity for some outdoor exercise.

Central Park is bordered on the north by West 110th Street, on the west by Central Park West, on the south by West 59th Street, and on the east by Fifth Avenue.

Getting There
