Description 

You can rappel from the top of the practice face down a bolted rappel line with a single 60m rope.

From the top, traverse carefully to the left corner of the buttress to a smallish tree with two rap-bolts by it's base. The bolts are hidden behind some rock, so it's tough to find. There is a tree with slings and rings about 20 feet above this rap station if you need to protect this approach (it is loose/slippery). Rappel on a single 60m rope to a second set of rap-bolts hidden next to the second large tree below. (-Larry S.)


Getting There 

Follow the trail up the Talus field by the Cold Air Cave

Optional belay from here, but it's a straight shot to the next belay.P2 - Follow the path of least resistance up the face above to gain the large left facing corner. Either go left of the rotting tree up a small right facing corner then traverse right into the bigger corner further up, or go right of the tree and up some lichen covered rock directly to the b...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
