Description 

Although dominated by its namesake Smiley Face (V4), the area packs in a surprising number of other great problems including Light Your Mind (V3), Left Bookend (V3), Nose Picker (V4), Multiple Personalities (V6) and the ultra-hard Tony’s Roof (V10). The grades in the area pretty much start at V3 so come ready to crank.

Getting There 

Take the trail beside the nature center into the forest. At first three-way trail junction go Right. At second three-way junction go Left and watch for an obvious access trail on Right. Take access trail into forest pass 45 area to the large (and well chalked) Smiley boulder.

An alternative approach is to enter the area from the white blaze trail. Look for access trail on left side of trail as you head into the forest. Access trail with double back and head uphill entering just below the Smiley boulder.

The start

Paula V5 6C  PA : South Central PA : ... : Smiley Area
Sit in the hole match hands in the crack. Get the huge foot below you and a good smear. Smear your heart out and pull up to the good finger lock with your right. Once you get there grab the arete with your left and work your feet around. Get into a layback position to bring your right hand up high and bring your left foot up onto the arete. Rock over to your left and work up to the lip. Top out the climb....[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
