Description 

a few sunny patches on the boulders that change climbs as the day goes along some shady and cool sides as well fairly secluded as you have to hike 30 mins (or more) to the sandstone boulders
a great place to climb the only problem is the climbs are short averaging 20-35ft quite a few sport routes and even a few trad routes


a free guide including all of the climbs!

Getting There 

From Westfield: Take Route 349 South for 3.5 miles into the small town of Sabinsville. Turn left onto School Street and after 100 yards make a right onto Locust street. You will pass a baseball Field on your right. Continue for about half a mile and make a right onto Gurnee Road (just after passing over a small bridge.) Follow Gurnee Road for about 3.5 miles. You will crest a hill and there will be a large ␣ eld on your right. Continue for another 1/2 a mile(entering into state forrest land) and you will see the trailhead on your right.
From Wellsboro: Take Route 6 West towards Galeton for approximately 15 miles. Turn right onto Shin Hollow Road (This turn is easy to miss, so be alert. There is a miniture golf course/gift store on your right at this intersection called Manhattan Station.) After turning right on Shin Hollow Road drive for approximately 4 miles. The road will level out and you will pass a large ␣ eld on your right. About half a mile later you will see the sign for the trailhead on your left.

From the Trailhead: Follow the red blazed trail into the woods. You will pass several very small streams on your way. After about 30 minutes of hiking you will cross over the stream on the trail map. Continue another 200 yards and take a left(actually the second left) heading up a steep hill. Follow the trail up over the top of the hill and to the rocks.

Often muddy after it rains be sure to wear boots!

The Chip 5.6

The Chip 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  PA : Blue Run Rocks : Lichen Wall
Found left of the chimney of the partially lichen covered wall. An easier crux makes this a nice introduction climb for someone new to the area. Start underneath flake, moving right around flake to ledge, to a nice finger crack crux. Easy finish to chains. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
