Is Safe Harbor North officially reopened now too? How cool!
If not let me know and I'll add an access note only for the north walls.
I can also help out with the admin tools as you flesh out the pages there.
I haven't been to Safe Harbor since I moved to California a couple of years ago. Out here we have a parallel crag to Safe Harbor, called Auburn Quarry.
After many years of closure, our local sport quarry is also opening to full time open access, a serious breakthrough. Here's to more quality neighborhood climbing spots!

|From a November 13, 2014 post on SafeHarborClimbing.com: "Safe Harbor North crags are now fully open to climbing, and we have recently received approval from the Manor Township Supervisor to approach Cemetery Wall from above via Observation Site Road. Theres a small parking lot at the gate, beyond which youll find a descent trail (on right) that will eventually lead you sharply downhill to the low grade. Turn right, and hike the low grade just a couple minutes to reach the highest climbs at Safe Harbor (on Cemetery Wall)."|

TEMPORARY CLOSURE: 1 March 2016
Specifically routes between and including "Mind Walk to Beat Crazy"
There is a peregrine falcon nest above Chutes and Ladders at Cemetery Wall Areas.
PA Game Commission would like climbers to not climb at these locations until after the fledglings leave the nest, which is approximately 6 weeks + 30 day incubation period.
So climb at south
or areas farther north until about mid May.
I will post when it is open again.

|Is there any information about the glue ins that seem to be prevalent at Safe Harbor North? Just trying to get a sense of how much these can be trusted. It's a little more difficult to evaluate glue ins than some other kinds protection. Before anyone says it, yes, I know, the choice to use them is mine alone. Just trying to assess the situation.|
