Several boulders/cliffs spread throughout the forest surrounding Cedar Lake, in Denville NJ. The area is split into a few separate sections, each being around a 5 minute walk from the last. The spots are nice and shady, but in the summer will still be uncomfortably hot and humid. As of now, only a select few climbers know of the location, so all bouldering establishment has been done by 2 or 3 people. The rock itself differs between areas, but it's mostly sharp and crumbly. Expect a few of the problems to hurt.
You can access the boulders from Cedar Lake East. On the drive in, you will pass a beach on the left, then continue on up a gradual hill. You'll climb a steep hill, then begin descending quickly. The road will make a sharp left turn. Midway through this turn you'll see a straight driveway directly in front of you lined with small pine trees. Approach this, and turn right into a small unpaved area big enough for 2 cars. This is the main entrance to the woods/trail system.
