Move up the flake until you can reach out left and gain the long rail. Climb straight up.
A true classic.

Variation: Flake/Crystal follows the flake up and right and to the top via a somewhat hidden crystal hold. V1


At the tallest, steepest section of the eastern face, find an obvious, large right-facing flake that arcs up right.

This problem starts right between the two large oak trees. In addition to the "traverse left to the rail" topout and the crystal topout on the right, one can also avoid the rail, crank straight up from the top of the flake to a small knob and pull/mantle up to the top.

Almost definitely the best for the grade (V0) in Central Park. I prefer the left-variation, but the crystal version is also fun.
