Comments: I agree with objectification of women being a problem on here but I cant defend this one as this seems very intentional that it was posted for reasons other than climbing.

Comments: I was looking to do this Climb over the weekend but I'm a bit confused. Can someone explain the 3rd pitch to me? the climb is listed as 2 pitches and the description lists P1 and P2 but then goes into something about continuing to climb after the GT ledge. but all the comments say to make sure you hit the 3rd pitch. I don't quite follow.

Comments: felt a little sandbagged like some other climbs at south wall. BETA: no cams work at the top of the crack, its gets too wide. keep your eyes open for other placement, its there. fun climb even if it was a bit scary for me being new to trad leading.

Comments: It was my friend's goal to lead the second "money" pitch so I led the first. I thought this pitch was a lot better than people give it credit for. I found it really tests your route finding and gear placement skills to keep rope drag down (if you're combining pitches) which I failed miserably at but I still found it to be a fun pitch.

As for the second pitch if you haven't done it yet don't get psyched out of climbing it, trust me. It's not as scary as everyone makes it out to be. Don't get... more >>

Comments: took an alternate line on TR on this. started about 6 feet to the right on the flakes. first half up to the ledge is pretty easy, 5.8 stuff. after the ledge is pretty non existent with a mix of mono pockets and small crimps, maybe 5.10/5.11 range. lot of fun though

Comments: the description says "6 bolts to anchors". last I remember, unless I missed something, there was 5 bolts and then the anchors.

Comments: fun little climb. at the mini roof you can stay to the right or for more fun pull it from directly under the roof. top out and you're pretty much done.

Comments: fun, short, and pumpy! be careful moving out left just before the anchors, its still pretty loose up there. my buddy pulled a breadloaf sized chunk down just the other day.

Comments: has the potential to be a good route but right now the rock fall is awful. there's also a lot of loose holds still on this route, so much so that I was afraid to grab anything by the end of the climb. first half has some pretty rough moves and the second half is an awkward scramble.
as with the bird always wear a helmet but this route is A MUST!

Comments: not sure who handles the upkeep at rumney but I was just on junko this weekend and one of the quick clip anchors has a loose gate that stays about half way open. when you try to close it the gate just falls open again. the other anchor is in good shape but to be safe the first one should be replaced.

Comments: Great news, the first cable bridge coming into the park has been fixed with a new pole courtesy of windstream communications and some helpful folks from the Birdsboro climbing group. the tree has been pulled out and a telephone pole put up in its place to fix how saggy and potentially dangerous the top cable was.
