We heard a report that an official survey was performed for a point near this cliff sector, and at least this cliff is very close to the boundary -- like perhaps the top might be inside the Park and the bottom (or middle) might be outside. We do not yet know of any general rule of the DEP forbidding climbing, and as of 2018 this area is not posted for any special status or restrictions. There is no general NJ Parks rule forbidding climbing (after submitting a signed waiver of liability form for the current year).
. . . (Add a fun inside corner, if do Variation).
Start on ridge / outside-corner which forms the right edge of the obvious low 16-inch-deep left-facing inside corner at the right end of this cliff.
Up the ridge / outside corner to stand up on wide ledge / platform.
. . . Variation: Start up inside corner and its left side to stand up on wide ledge / platform (without using holds on the right-side ridge, but right-side inside face is OK).
Next straight up short face and onto slab (crux). Finish left-ward up slab.
warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber or someone setting up top anchor.
. . . (Lots of vegetation on this rock as of 2018. Be prepared when climbing to navigate around protruding trees and branches, and dealing with holds slippery with grass, lichen, moss, dirt).
