Description

Bilger's Rocks, in western PA, is owned and maintained by a local association. It's a "rock city" of Pennsylvania age sandstone, with many bouldering and easy to set top-rope climbs of 30-40 ft. The rock is clean and solid. There are no established sport routes; there is only one old bolt anchor on one northern rock face. It is mostly shaded, with camping, concessions, and rest rooms available on the property, adjacent to the rock areas.

Very fun area. Not a lot of height, but surprisingly fun short routes that are actually a bit more difficult than you'd think at first glance. If it's damp, the rock feels like soap, and slopers are almost impossible to hold. Take chalk, and also carry a small wire brush the size of a toothbrush, as well as a larger one to use for cleaning holds and face moves. You can't smear your foot on lichens, to you'll want to clean up the routes a bit if you find some good lines. A fun place to hang with family and friends who like to challenge themselves a bit on top-ropes and bouldering. Oct 8, 2017

If you are in the area this place is really cool to explore. Narrow paths in-between formations (stone maze'esque), caves, funky and fun stone that is less-than-vertical, vertical and overhanging. Plenty to play on including a few easy cracks.

Worth it if you're already in the area. Jul 3, 2014
