Central Park Bouldering
December 15, 2001
With skyscrapers rising in the behind it, Rat Rock represents urban bouldering at it's finest.
Merrick realizes that seeing how to grab the next hold and actually doing it are two very different things.
Following Yuki's advice Merrick places his foot an inch higher and shifts his weight. The problem at Cat Rock is realized.
Yuki Ikumori, known as the grandmaster of central park bouldering, demonstrates why he has that title.
Yuki spent most of the bouldering session giving beta and showing us problems. Once in a while he would hop on one of his creations and move powerfully and fluidly.
