Location: NJ : Delaware Water Gap NRA, NJ ... : Double Overhang Area : Double Overhang (5.8-)
By: Larry S When: 6 days ago

Comments: Great route - One of the best I've been on at the Gap.

Some additional info - Start in the same spot as you would for corkscrew. First pitch goes direct to the Juniper at 5.5 pg. Possible belays at the juniper or any of the small ledges up to 20' above it if you want to be closer to the crux.

2nd pitch goes up pretty easily to the roof, where some commitment, good hand jams, and small edges for your feet will get you past. Possible belay just after the roof to prevent rope drag. If you con... more >>

Comments: At least one bolt on Morning Sickness needs replacing. The second bolt hanger is for some reason flattened against the rock.

Comments: This route would probably be a challenge for a 5.6 climber, the route finding and gear between the P1 roof (at the pins) and the corner belay was difficult. I ended up stepping down a few moves to get my hands in the large crack, traversing under the slab to gain a block close to the corner, then went up the middle of the slab.

The P1 roof was IMO, the technical crux, and the corner above the belay would be a messy area to fall, though was pretty straight-forward jugs and stemming.

Comments: it's slabbed in enough at the bottom that the rope usually ends up in a pile on the rock/dirt, not in the reservoir. We've done a number of the climbs over there and never had it end up in the water.

Comments: The V2 in the guide climbs a line maybe 2 feet to the left of the line shown. I don't know if they're intended to be the same route. The V2 version stems the shallow depression in the face and moves up small holds to grab the arete on the left before topping out.

Comments: From the next picture in the series - " In the past, he slung the point instead of using a cam, but after watching the sling lift off the point in the middle of the crux, I suggested using a cam instead...."

Comments: The last of the 3 sections of that red line is probably a little off from the official route. I went wide right before coming back left and topping out, whereas the route line in the book shows pulling a small roof (obvious crack) right by where the 3rd part of the line starts, then moving right and toping out.

Comments: 10b if you use the arete on the left. Apparently 10d if you stay more right and go up the blank looking face.

Comments: I installed a hanger on the stud at the bottom, the stud isn't that great though...

Relatively straight forward route for the first 5 or 6 or so bolts. There is a distinct crux after you reach the bore-hole, it's very difficult to keep your feet from skating off. The is a bolt very nearby as you do the crux, a little below your waist.

Comments: I thought this route was quite good. There are good hands and moves around the bulge, with good feet if you can see them/feel for them (or just get a really high foot), then very thoughtful / technical moves up the slab up top. I found the the crux to be everything from the second to last bolt to the anchor.

Comments: Most climb the face, from the bottom left corner of this photo straight to the bolts at the top.

Comments: No need for the big zig-zag jog go straight up from the top of the low dihedral to the bolts. Alternatively, start on the raised platform to the left and merge into the route a little above the dihedral.

Comments: Jonah - If you go up the face on P2, it's 5.easy (it's so leaned in it can be done without putting your hands on the rock) but the gear is more sparse. Sounds like the gear in the corner pulled you in.

Comments: if you rap climbers left off the ledge with the bolts, you'll make it with a 60 to the raised platform above the trail... at least my 60 makes in no problem. If you rap up the way you climbed, you'll probably run out of rope and risk a bad swing. It's definitely not a good rap line, but I do like being able to get down w/o carrying a second rope.

Comments: You can do some variations around this to change the grade a bit. The roof can be pulled at a crack on the right, and you can continue up to the arÍte a few different ways. Straight up looked grungy and poorer rock.

Comments: The guidebook says to approach up the left side of the gully system on the climb "Hidden passage" It is likely very very overgrown. You can start up Wine Couloir,the slab on the right side of the gully, an traverse left across the gully at an obvious spot with some trees. The last 10 feet of the approach are dangerously loose.

Comments: I was confused by the "black C3" comment too. I figured the C3 part was wrong, not the color.
