Hunter's Rocks is mostly on state game lands area, and partly in Rocky Ridge Natural Area. A small, closed section is on private land, so respect this and help preserve access to the public areas.
When you see the first boulders at the top of the trail, the private section is down a small trail to the left. The public section is everything to the right and along the ridge.
This area has seen active development since the 1950's. While many original route names and first ascents are lost to history, whatever you call it, there is ample excellent bouldering at Hunter's Rocks.
Most Popular version (v7): Stand start (may need to stack pads for shorter climbers to reach the starting holds), left in obvious round pocket out left, right in sidepull pocket, right heel up and cross left hand to crimp, top out straight up. Original start (v8-9): stand start in the middle of the overhanging boulder, left hand in break, right directly above in sidepull pocket, right foot up, cross left hand to crimp...helps to be really strong, really flexible, and shorter for this variation. ...[more]Browse More Classics in PA
Comments on Hunter's Rocks (Rocky Ridge Natural Area)
I'd like to populate this guide with the climbs on Public land (Mojo is on private property). To do this I'd appreciate if the admins could create 3 subsections: the main area (standard american accent and surrounding boulders), the power cut, and a small area I did some developing in, further northeast up the ridgeline - dubbed "The Oaks."
I'd be happy to do the work if someone could make me an admin for the area.
Hey Eric, thanks for writing up these routes! I'll divide them up as you asked when I get to a desktop PC (off in phone limbo now). If you want to be an admin permanently let me know, and I'll pass it on to the site owners. Otherwise I'm glad to do this one time sort. Thanks!
Justin - I'd love to become an administrator for Hunters. I'm not longer in the area but I'm active on MP and have a fair amount of information piled away in my brain about Hunters. I'd love to see more people on the public land climbs out there.
