Climb the Mabley Green Boulder

The Mabley Green Boulder, in Mabley Green, Hackney Wick, is one of two large boulders placed in East London parks by Artist John Frankland. The sculpture, which is a big bit of Cornish granite, was added as part of the Hackney Wick Festival in September 2008, by Core Arts.

Nowadays, some climbing-fans see it as a challenge, and like to climb it. There have even been professional climbing classes held there in the past. Unless you're experienced, your author feels duty-bound to suggest you don't climb it, and just have a nice look at it. You climb very much at your own risk.
