More Ft. tryon pic (north)

The cliff face in the north of Ft. Tryon park looks great. Enter the park just south of the play ground at Riverside Dr. and B'Way (A-line, Dyckman St. Station). Follow the main path west and uphill (making a slight left not too far in). Just past a huge walkable slab lies a decent looking outcrop, 40ft high, right on the path. The landing has some dirt and the path, otherwise the area is clean, and seem to have low foot traffic. I would suggest top roping, personally. What's really nice is that it has slab sections, 2 large overhangs and a prow, so there's plenty of variation for a single site. Oh and beware the lamppost, lest it bite you in the ass!
