Description

One of the more sandbagged boulders in Central Park (at least on the lower end of the grade spectrum). Short and sweet problems: four or five moves on sharp holds, followed by generally easy topouts. Most problems start from sit-starts though, and sometimes getting off of the ground can be the hardest part. Admittedly, the grades sometimes make more sense after spending an hour and a half puzzling over the beta, but good luck convincing yourself that the crimpy overhung arete is a V1...

This boulder is awesome for when you have an hour or two to yourself, with no spotter or crashpad. If you try climbing it wet, good luck.

Getting There

Follow the dirt trail from the parking lot for the Boat House - You'll be there in a few minutes, and you'll know it when you see it.

If you continue walking, you'll come to Split Rock, which also has a few solid problems.

So stoked to have finally found the name of this boulder. Super fun line climbing the Arete. Definitely not 4 stars, but real cool. Thanks for the post Dec 2, 2017
