BETA PHOTO: The lower climbs seen from the trail in.

Description 

Lower Climbs in Birdsboro Quarry. This is a popular place to warm up on the shortest, lowest section of Birdsboro. Most of the routes of slabby and of moderate difficulty, going from 5.7 to 5.11b with only a couple of two-digit grades down here. The short height of the wall makes it easy to communicate and instruct newer leaders at cleaning and rappelling.


Getting There 

From the welcome sign, follow the wide right-hand trail downhill toward the reservoir. Follow the path left around the fence to the other side. Watch to the left, and the open area of shorter, slabby rock faces you reach are the Lower Climbs.
