Description

A bouldering area directly across the creek from the (old) police station at the corner of Lincoln Drive and Gypsy Lane.

Torque is on the boulder with some blue spray paint on it that says "wolfto...". from the trail, it looks like a triangle on it's point. orangish color.

Sit start matching on the crimp. get matched in the mail slot, dyno to the lip.

The left variation has the same start, but breaks left into pocket like features at the first move, the right variation has the same start as torque, but breaks right at the end. A crimp comes into play, and you dyno to the lip a few feet to the right of the torque finish. Both problems are harder than torque.

About eight feet to the left of the torque sit starts, on the flat side of the wall, there are a few V4's.

Up on the hillside just down the path, further from torque, closer to forbidden drive, there's a fun ever-evolving arete that also goes in the V4 range.

Getting There

Right off the Wissahickon Bike Trail, about 1/2 mile north of Ridge Ave.
