Description 

Main Wall Area


Getting There 

To the Main Wall From US 11 Cross the bridge into Mocanaqua. Follow 239 into town to where 239 makes a 90 turn to the right go straight on SR 3004 instead of following 239. The parking is a small dirt lot up a mile give or take on the left immediately off the road before the s turns. The trail is on the right of the little parking lot. The Main Wall cliff parallels the road here and is quite close to the road, but nicely screened by the trees.

Great juggy climb on the center of Main Wall. Doesn't protect very well, but can be set up as a top rope from the top access trail. Has some really fun moves....[more]   Browse More Classics in PA

The Rob Holtzman guide claims that the Main Wall is "arguably one of the best areas to climb in Pennsylvania", but don't be fooled. The main wall is much less than vertical, has a ton of ledges, is hard to protect, and is generally not all that awesome to climb on. The nearby Paradise Rock or The Library are much better quality crags.
