Access Issue: Avoid private land on approach to public areas Details

Description

Hunter's Rocks is mostly on state game lands and partly in the Rocky Ridge Natural Area. A small closed section is on private land, so respect this and help preserve access to the public areas.When you see the first boulders at the top of the trail, the private section is down a small trail to the left. The public section is everything to the right and along the ridge.This area has seen active development since the 1950s. While many original route names and first ascents are lost to history, there is still excellent bouldering at Hunter's Rocks.Eric Heiden shared an excellent Google Maps guide of the area:Google Maps guide;msa=0

Getting There

The coordinates here will get you driving directions to the main parking lot on Frew Road.

Since you will approach on or near Pennsylvania State Game lands, be sure to wear orange when it's hunting season.

Bat Conservation | How You Can Help

See a Bat on a Route, Give Us a Shout! 

Hey climbers, one of our SCPC members is working with Rob Schorr at Colorado State to help him spread the word about his bat research. Here’s a message from him about this important work and how, we as climbers, can help.

"Climbers for Bat Conservation is working with climbers to understand bat ecology and why bats choose certain cracks and flakes. We’re a collaboration between climbers, bat biologists, and land managers to understand where bats roost and where large populations may reside. We are interested in finding bats because of a new disease called white-nose syndrome (whitenosesyndrome.org) which has killed millions of bats in North America. This collaboration has identified bat roosts throughout the U.S., and as far away as Norway and Bulgaria. CBC was developed by biologists who climb and they are advocates for climbing access and bat conservation.

So, if you see bats while climbing, please let us know by emailing us at climbersforbats@colostate.edu, or visiting our website to learn more. climbersforbats.colostate.edu."

Thank You!
