" Climb beyond your Climb "

 
Legislative Report
 

 The New Jersey Administrative Code (NJAC) has to be amended to allow climbing and rappelling on state owned and managed land.  Once the NJAC is amended the belief (based on direct comments from land managers) is that land managers in turn will follow the NJ State lead and we can get climbing opened up on state owned and private lands here in NJ.

 
This effort is a true grass-root effort and we require to bridge to associations of climbers in the community. 
 
As a for instance:  NJ's climbing gyms is one of these forges.  The conservative estimated number of NJ's citizens who use NJ's 4 climbing gyms exceeds 5,000 people of voting age.
 
Attend and give public testimoney before the NJ Governors Task Force on the NJ Highlands.  Contact ingvarja@cwenj.com for exact details.
