Nice and shady spot amongst the Rambles, where a climber can be alone, with compelling need for neither spotter nor crashpad. Split Rock only has five established problems on it (ranging from V0 to V5), but some of them are very high-quality, and worth projecting and coming back to.

The rock is only steps from Freestanding Rock, down the road from Arch Rock, and (if you're a braver climber than I) Hepatitis Boulder. These three or four together make for a solid little bouldering area.

Getting There 

Follow the dirt trail from the parking lot for the Boat House - In a few minutes, you'll see the unmistakable Freestanding Rock. Walk about 100ft west, and you'll find the equally unmistakable Split Rock.

Contrary to the name, I actually quite love this problem - I'd rate it as one of my favorite V1s in the park. Sit-start on the far-right side of the western-half (non-traverse side) of Split Rock. Traverse left until you reach the somewhat overhung arete, and then top out direct....[more]   Browse More Classics in NY
