Sunny most of the day. When Phone booth is crowded it is normally got a few great lines open. Some of the climbs here can be super fun and challenging. Nameless Arete 10c is a tough sport climb. A lot of climbs now have bolts and chains at the top for less impact on the trees and natural features. It makes climbing here much safer and quicker. Unfortunately it also brings more people and less experienced climbers, it can get busy on weekends.

Getting There 

Walk the top trail to the end of the first major rock cliff take stair stepped gully down to Phone Booth Buttress then walk past Phone Booth about 150 feet just past narrow stop in trail look for graffiti on rock face and then you are there.

We start this a little different then the book describes by simply starting off the trail. Go straight up first block to nice ledge where the Nameless Arete starts. Continue straight up the graffiti section about 10 feet off ledge is the crux you pull and awkward mantel then reach for small crimpers above you. Continue straight up to big roof. Holds are there but sometimes you have to reach and get keep them feet on....[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
