A climbing guide to New Jersey? As likely as a deep-sea fishing guide to Nebraska, you say? Not so! Scattered throughout the Garden State are a number of worthwhile cliffs, outcrops and boulders. This first-of-a-kind guide presents you with a suprising abundance of multi-pitch traditional routes, heinous boulder problems, bolted faces and top-rope lines located throughout central and northern NJ, and just over the state's borders. Some big-name climbers have trained on the rock described in these pages: Henry Barber, Jeff Gruenberg, Lynn Hill, Colin Lanz, Russ Raffa, William Shockley and many others.

This guide describes over twenty climbing areas and about 400 routes and boulder problems. It provides directions to each area, lists the principal routes and boulder problems, and describes the atmosphere to be found there (solitude or crowds, scenic views or broken bottles, solid rock or friable grunge). Maps, topos and photographs are included where relevant.
