Description 

This is the area back in the trees, closer to the North Buttress than the Main Wall. The Cave is a highly visible feature once you are near it. The best bouldering in the area is in and around the cave, and one to two pitch trad climbs tackle its roof (5.0 to 5.10+).

Getting There 

Walk south along the rails to trails path, you'll see the chalk-up cave from the path.

Sit start. Long steep boulder problem. Mostly larger, smooth holds so you won't have to worry about tweeking fingers or running out of skin. The crux for me came after the sit start getting to the long up and left traverse. The second crux is moving past the finishing jug of the exorcist. Once the second crux is done, you can climb higher and to the left as shown in the picture and walk off, down climb or jump down. If anyone knows who the FA was, the grade, or if this is the correct name,...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
