Join us this September as we launch a brand new partnership with The North Face with a bouldering launch party for the brand new Explore More Challenge!

We'll be kicking things off on September 24th with professional climber Cedar Wright, who'll join us to lead a bouldering session in Central Park followed by a talk at The North Face's Upper West Side Store.

But that's not all, we'll also be launching the brand new NYC Explore More Challenge. You'll get a listed of 10 adventures in and around the city for you to explore. Finish the challenge and you'll win prizes from The North Face. Be the first person to finish the challenge... you'll get an even bigger prize! From biking to hiking to camping - join us to find out about our 10 favorite local adventures and how you can get outdoors.
