Description Suggest change

This is a great wall set just off the Appalachian Trail that was developed back in the 1990's and 2000's by Joey Vulpis, Christine Licata and several local climbers. The rock consists of a variation of quartzite and shale. The wall height tops out at 45 feet in the center and is primarily used by NJSAR Mountain Rescue, Northeast Mountain Guiding and the National Park Service Mountain Rescue teams. This is a great area for scouting groups as access is fairly easy and the climbing is mid-grade.
