Faced with immense amounts of time and little money, Gaz Leah set out on a project that would turn the NYC bouldering scene on its head. The entire city had no workable guidebook in place and he wanted to change that, so Leah grabbed a topo map and explored. He found hidden gems and routes that most had never even considered. Now, as the author of New York City Bouldering, he's back at his usual adventures. Find more from The Local's Project here and the Basin and Range series here.
