About Delaware Water gap (Mount Tammany):

New Jersey's biggest and best multi pitch climbing area. With over two hundred routes if you include Mt.Minsi which is on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River (go to the Pa. page for Mount Minsi). Mt Tammany is bigger and more spectacular than Minsi. With spectacular situations and easy access these cliffs will only gain in popularity as time goes on. Mt Tammany holds a hundred or so routes, many of them considered authentic "test pieces" for their grade, the maximum so far being in the 5.12 range. This area has a strong traditional ethic of being a "ground-up" area, there are no sport routes at the Gap and the use of motorized drills is illegal. Cleaning routes on rappel of loose rocks, dirt, and grass is encouraged. Helmets are MANDATORY when climbing at the Gap!!! If you value your safety you'll use them!!! Hike the Red Dot Trail next to the parking area and you'll be in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area and camping is free...there is an awesome campsite up high which faces Mt.Minsi, Pa, You'll wake up above the clouds.
