Description

Maybe one of the best problems in Central Park. Sit start into a layback on prominent leaning crack up to a crimp. Match and move out right to a good sloper. Turn the corner, and into the crux..

Location

Starts on the right side of the flat, north facing wall at rat rock and traverses right, around the corner.

Several variations exist:
No feet - V6
Speedy Gonzales: skip the "golf ball" and the sloper pinch and go straight into the crack. Really long move - V7 Nov 29, 2014

No pad needed. The bulb immediately after the sloper is off, forcing a match, or so I was told. Highly recommended for both the great movement and the novelty of a central park boulder that can be done during a lunch hour, a weekend trip, or a long-term project. Classic IMO! Jun 6, 2018
