DescriptionThe bridge pillar used to support some bridge between Schenley Park and South Oakland. There are four bolted routes ones about 5.9, another 5.10, the other two are more difficult (5.11ish?). The blocks are cut stone about 3' by 6'. Amazingly there ae a variety of holds on each route. Jams, pinches, slopers, and of course crimps.
If you live in Pittsburgh its worth one trip. If you go to Pitt, well it may be the only climbing that won't get you arrested.
