[Hide Comment] Thanks for posting this guys. I knew I was going to be driving through and I knew I couldn't pass up wandering through central park. The little description y'all gave enabled me to find this within 25 minutes of driving into manhattan for the first time.

A few attempts and a couple falls from the top of the arete problem finally got me up. :) Nov 8, 2010
