Hi all,

There's been a lot of exciting news in the Northeast climbing community and I thought I'd share it with you just in case you haven't heard all of the good news.

THACHER PARK NEAR ALBANY IS OPENING TO SPORT CLIMBING JULY 1ST

There will be approximately 50 bolted routes with anchors ranging from 5.5 to 5.12. Guide is available via the Gunks App.

SEVERAL NEW PARKS IN NYC ARE NOW OPEN TO BOULDERING

Several parks in New York City—such as Highbridge Park, Inwood Park, and Van Cortland Park—have long been known to host tempting bouldering opportunities. However, the sport has never been officially allowed in these parks—until now.
