Our 1996 Guide "New Jersey Crags"
has information about certain areas (Green Pond in particular)
that for legal reasons were omitted from the new guide.
Accidents in North American Mountaineering, Volume 7, Number 5, Issue 53, 2000,
page 65, describes one fatality
and two other serious rock climbing accidents that occurred at
the Delaware Water Gap in the past year. It appears that all three accidents
were caused by rocks breaking off.
For those who (like us) often cool off with a swim in the
Delaware River after a day at the Water Gap, note
that there were seven drownings at that spot in 1999
[New York Times, May 30, 2000].
On page 136 of your book under OTHER NORTHERN NEW JERSEY AREAS you mention
Mahlon Dickerson Reservation and a Halden overlook. I think you
mean Headley overlook. It is has a great view
of Lake Hopatcong.
