The Beginning 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a  PA : The Northwest : Lion's Den
A neglected route in the heart of the lions den area. Climb past huecos and a bolt to a 2 foot roof (crux). Clip another bolt and navigate over a roof to easier climbing above. Great route in a secluded location!...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
