I saw a post dated back to 2011 by a ‘johnboy’ about an albany bouldering guide book and tried the number he left but that seems to be a dead end. Anyone have any idea about the 100s of boulder problems he aludes to?
Would be fantastic to get more info!5 September 2017 at 10:21 PM #170229John boyGuest

I’m here in Albany visiting from the US for a few days. Heard (and can see) that is beautiful granite around here. Is Mutton Bird still the spot to go? Any guidebooks or written resources? thecrag.com seems to have the most info I can find but I was wondering if there was any bouldering closer to the city as well.
Also need to pick up a pair of shoes, my ratty ones didn’t make it onto the plane… Anywhere in town that sells climbing gear? Can’t believe it’s relatively undeveloped here given how much rock seems to be around.
