Access Issue: Private Property? Details

Description

About 15 sport routes established so far. Some are open projects and bolting is on going.  Most routes are 40-45 fr but a few sections offer climbing from 55-65 ft.  There are also some good cracks for trad.  Sport climbing section owned by Village of Hanover that seem ambivalent to climbing.  Left side bouldering is private property but the owner has been ok with climbing.  Don’t stray around up top.  More potential for bouldering development.  Park across from the sign on Marne Rd. 

Getting There

Heading east from Newark on SR 16, right around the turnoff for Black Hand Gorge but on the north side of the road.

Property owned by the township of Hanover. Climbing has been established here for a long time, without official permission to my knowledge, but the walls were largely not bolted until recently. I have spoken to the local worker that comes to work at the water treatment facility and he was ambiguous about climbing. Oct 24, 2018
