The state of Delaware has no world famous destinations, but if you're there and you want to climb outside, there are some fine local boulders and crags.
Alapocas Run State Park is Delaware’s major developed climbing area, with a collection of toprope and sport routes being actively developed. Climbing with gear is only allowed on the main wall here, and then only with a permit from Blue Ball Barn. Bouldering, on the other hand, is not as tightly regulated.
Other climbing destinations mostly feature boulders. No doubt other areas will be established and developed over time. Delaware Climbing Coalition
has helpful resources for climbers living or visiting here.
