About The New Routes:

6 Newly Bolted Routes above the Highball Slab/Original Bolted Area
Approach: Park in the Bancroft Mills Parking lot behind the Delaware Art Museum (in the DE State Parks lot, not the business/residential lot please), walk across bridge, make a right, walk .25 mile and over the stream. There is a small trail following next to the stream. This trail will dump you off at the top of the climbs.
Approach Time: 10 Minutes
Latitude, Longitude: 39.76873, -75.55881
Access Issues: The bridge will be closed until Mid September 2008 on Weekdays and you must park in the other lot near the Experimental Station and hike in. When using the Bancroft Mills lot, please do not park in the business or residential lot. There is plenty of parking for everyone in the park's lot, it is just the furthest lot behind the fence next to the mill.
