This area between the Cave and the Main Wall is mostly shady and overgrown. It has established two and three pitch trad routes, ranging from 5.2 to 5.10. There is a rocky trail that leads down along the base of the cliff.

Getting There 

As your walking in along the trail you will pass the North West Buttress on the left,the next section is the cave area which is marked by the bouldering cave in the middle. The trail valley climbs begin about 50-60 feet right of the cave. The first climbs begin in a large corner at the end of the overhanging system. To get to the start of the climbs take one of the off shoot trails in the the "valley".

If you're climbing solo this is a great warm-up for the boulder problems in the cave. There are a few cruxy spots and some long sections of sustained climbing. Working from right to left seemed to be a little more difficult. Route can be made much more difficult using eliminates or staying under the heavily overhanging sections.Great for an after-work solo/no gear required workout....[more]   Browse More Classics in PA

I have often wanted to climb this area. What routes are in this area that are worth reestablishing?
