This is just to say that I'm a climber (Sport: 5.12 / Bouldering: v3-v7 (depending upon the problem).
Just moved to the city (student at Columbia--MFA-poetry) about a month ago from the hills of North Carolina. Always looking for spots.
One hour north of NYC by Metro-North or car, this home is minutes away from Breakneck Ridge on the banks of the Hudson River in Cold Spring. This private Lake Valhalla home offers direct access to hiking trails as well as the beautiful lake to swim, kayak/canoe and winter skating. Architect-inspired renovation in 1986, this beautiful home has been carefully tended and is easy to maintain.
