It's Not Balderdash -- There's a Dash for the Boulders at Highbridge Park

Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed on rocks and other small rock formations, usually measuring less than 20 feet high without the use of ropes or harnesses.  As it turns out, for all those into the sport of bouldering who reside in New York City, the options are somewhat limited. There are a number of indoor facilities such as Steep Rock Bouldering at 1507 Lexington Ave.

But, then there are the outdoor facilities.  For this type of experience boulderers need not look any further than Highbridge Park, right here in upper Manhattan.  There are an abundance of rocks to choose from that are free to use and available throughout most of the year.  Enjoy the rocks!
