Bouldering areas can be found widely distributed across Long Island, from as far west as Manhasset (Shelter Rock) to the easternmost reaches of the North Fork (East Marion). While none of these areas will ever be a destination, they offer a decent quantity of climbs on usually very high quality rock in frequently highly aesthetic locations. It's pretty hard to track down accurate names and first ascent info for all the climbs, though the vast majority of climbs were developed by a small, but highly motivated crew from Island Rock back in the day lead by Jack Delarusso? (I know my spelling is probably wrong, so please give me the correct info) and Chris Ortiz.
A few special considerations:
-Several of the areas are affected by tides and may not be climbable during high tides.
-Long Island is known for its abundance of ticks, particularly Deer Ticks (which carry Lyme Disease), so take precautions when out in the woods.
-Several areas may be on private property or are accessed through private property. (It's hard to know with the coastal areas.) So, please be respectful and keep a low profile.
-Treat these areas with respect. Brush your chalk and ticks. Clean up after yourself and pack out any litter you might see.
-Everything you climb/find has almost certainly been climbed before. There are only a few potential FAs left and those are in the v11 and up category.
