Comments: I can't tell if sonething has changed on route, but the belay looks like it's still there. The possible scar looks about 30 feet right of the balay.

Comments: Attempted to add a few more pitches to this over the weekend, starting from Black Wall:

P6. Starting as for Black Wall, climbed up about 30 feet, and began traversing, bypassing the outside corner. We traversed across the Triumvirate wall and belayed atop the lower corner of The Rib, about halfway up the first pitch, at the same hight as the slabs below Friends in High Places.

P7. From there, we went across the slabs below Friends in High Places. We set a belay in the Colorado Corner, but the... more >>

Comments: Definitely climbable if you can find a partner, but the gap is little traveled. Try the Partner Finder, look for people around 07832 and 18013.

Comments: The bolts at the top of P2 are looking in poor shape. They appear to be a rawl 5pc plated steel with metolius rap hangers. The bolts themselves are decently rusted on the outside. Perhaps someone with a little more bolting experience can check them out?

Comments: The top rap anchor on Osprey/HH has been replaced, not sure when for sure, but in the last 2 years for certain. Nice SS Fixe hangers with Chains in a perfect location. A mid-wall anchor has also appeared which allows rapping with a single rope. It's tough to find though, hiding over a tiny ledge 15' left of the first rap line, at a height about 20 feet above the first belay ledge on Osprey. HOWEVER! I don't know if you would reach it on a 60m rope, if you do it will be close. It's worth no... more >>

Comments: Josh - I'm not the most knowledgeable on haycock - but things we probably be pretty overgrown, and with the heat & humidity, the climbing might be greasy. I think i went in the summer a few years ago and the caves trail was practically gone. It's tough to follow when the foliage isn't in. If you've never been and do go, i would start at the hanger 18 area.

If it doesn't work out for you, Ralph Stover / High Rocks is just down the road too, with easy top-rope setups, but that place is an oven... more >>

Comments: Minsi is reopened effective today 6/19. Unfortunately the nesting has failed again. They suspect predators got the two falcon chicks, they were missing as of 6/15.

Comments: P2 can be a popular rappel route, so be aware that the rap goes straight thru the crux of the climb, and climbers below the crux are not visible from people rappelling.

P2 itself is worth doing, the crux is well protected and short, with a little run out above it (don't place gear in the flake).

The opening moves of P2 will probably keep some parties off this climb, the first place you want to place gear is after the insecure traverse onto the face, at which point you're 15+ feet over the GT l... more >>

Comments: Dropping a link to this here because it's important - The PA Game Commission is considering restricting access to state game lands during hunting seasons, potentially shuttering access to many of our climbing areas during the best times of the year.

Comments: After playing with google for a bit:
Fixiert - Fixed (obvious) - I guess direct off the anchor minimal slippage?
Bewegliche Masse - Movable Mass - Off the belayer, no slippage
Bewegliche Masse & Tuber - Off the belayer, dynamic belay thru tube belay device

Vorsteiger - Lead Climber
Sichernder - Securing - Belay
Zwischensicherung - Protection - Top Piece
