Start 4 feet left of the big block with the tree on top of it.
Pitch 1: Climb up over the vegetated ledges to the blocky wall above. Climb toward a short chimney, through the chimney and then work your way right to a small ledge. Belay here. There’s a vertical crack 5 feet off the ledge for anchors.
Pitch 2: Traverse far left about 15 to 20 feet across the horizontal cracks and then climb up the face to the top. This is the most photographed section of a climb at the Delaware Water Gap. Belay and rappel from the trees on top.
Triumvirate Direct - From mid-way up P2 as described, head left to gain an obvious large left facing corner and slabby face (potentially move the belay or end P1 here). Follow this up till meeting a roof at the very end of the P3 traverse. Place good gear and make an airy and committing swing around onto the face above the roof, rejoining P3 just below the cedar tree. 5.6.
Descent: A 180' double rope rappel from a bolted anchor, or continue 20' up 5.0 terrain to the very top.
