EPAC is honored to continue the legacy of Doug Reilley’s guidebook “Climbs of the Tohickon Gorge: A Climber’s Guide to High Rocks”. Doug graciously transferred EPAC his copyright and all original content. (A portion of the archives can be found in the slideshow below.)
When possible, EPAC used original content with minor edits. It was an amazing experience for all involved to bring the guide from hand drawn topos to the digital era. It was also an exciting learning experience to clarify historical data on first ascents and routes. We did our best to ensure the accuracy but know full well that errors, omissions and misspellings may exist. We hope you can help us correct any of these inaccuracies.
Another exciting aspect of this project is a portion of the proceeds come right back to EPAC. It will help us grow our organization as well as fund projects specifics to High Rocks.
While many EPAC board members were greatly involved in this process, it would not have come to fruition without the time and dedication of Andrew MacNamee (editor) and Mike Rogers (photographer).
It’s been quite the honor to have EPAC reach out to me in regard to the High Rocks guide mobile app. My efforts to write the guidebook, Rock Climbs of the Tohickon Gorge, was a fun project when I first set out to tackle it. Researching the area’s routes and climbing history proved to be very rewarding. Many thanks to EPAC and the various contributors to further clarify route descriptions and update my horrible topo’s with clear, concise photographs! If you are able, please support this great organization and its efforts to support local climbing.
Happy Climbing!– Doug Reilley
