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.

Comments: there is a new climb here. its just to the right of dancing nancy. anyone know the name or info about it? I ran into Ted and he told me its in the neighborhood of a 5.9 but didn't give me a name. I flashed it by staying to the right side and it certainly has 5.9 moves but if you run straight up the bolt line its more in the 5.10 or higher range

Comments: pretty good, fresh climb for the bird. nice exposed crux to the anchors. just be aware, as with a lot of climbs at the bird it is covered in dirt.

Comments: if you want to intro someone to lead climbing, go over to connors climb. while this is not a terrible climb its always very dirty and not really worth messing around on.

Comments: my climbing partner was on rappel and knocked off a boulder about the size of a small car tire. it was simply resting on top of a ledge. just be careful as things have clearly broken loose in the corner there.

Comments: route is ok. not really worth climbing in my opinion, you have to cross some scree to get to it and its very overgrown.

Comments: decent route. I felt the crux was after the second bolt when you have to transition over the nose to the third bolt. the only hold I found is a nub the you can hook maybe two fingers on and its a stretch to get over the nose.

Comments: this is an ok starter route. its probably the tallest starter route there. be careful though, there is choss and the route is very dirty (like layers of dirt). Also as gblauer said be careful lowering or rapping, if youre not paying attention youll go over the left side and it becomes a pain to get down

Comments: good route for learning edging, small ledges. this route will give you an idea of what some of safe harbor looks like.

Comments: this is a good route with a slight lean back crux after the 2nd bolt. kind of weird to get to the anchors, you have to traverse to the left and up and over making cleaning the route awkward (hence dirty swing).
