Rim Road Climbing Area Rock Climbing
Not sure what the name of this climb is. It's arou...
East facing crag about 30-50 feet high. Nice views of the Slippery Rock Creek and other tourists going about their business. Lots of shade from the trees can keep sections of the rock damp for a while after rain.
There is a good bouldering traverse wall and a few good top-rope routes here. Better suited to the beginner/intermediate than the Breakneck Bridge crag. There are a few easy to moderate routes that aren't too steep mixed in with some fun overhanging stuff.
Located across the river from the mill. Drive over the covered bridge and make a quick right onto the dirt Rim Road. Drive a 1/4 mile or so and park at the picnic tables with the kiosk noting the climbing area below. Walk 40 feet to the top of the cliff. Either walk/scramble to the base or rappel in.
Weather station 8.7 miles from here

Follow a left leaning crack system up and left avoid the very large ledge. Once under the roof, stay left through a series of crimps to the top. Definitely an easy climb, with a much harder crux. Quality route though, a park favorite!...[more] Browse More Classics in PA
