Description

Coll's Cove is a SWPA gem! Nestled beneath a mediocre cliff line exists hundreds of boulder problems on fine-grained "pa gritstone". With classics ranging from V0 to V10, and projects that will go in the double digits, Coll's has alot to offer. It is located on PA State Game Lands, and climbing is currently allowed. Please respect popular hunting seasons.

Keep in mind that listed here is only a handfull of the absolute classics, you are only seeing a small fraction of what is really here. You just have to come see for yourself!
Colls Cove Access Update Details

Getting There

Follow GPS Coordinates to the entrance road on your left marked with a green gate and no parking sign, then continue another 50 yards and pull into the driveway on your left. Park in the yard to your left, then walk back to the green gated road. Walk about a 1/4 mile down this gas line access road. When the road splits to the right, look left for the obvious logging trail. This will lead you into the main area.

I'm releasing the pre-guide to the general public! It features some of the best lines and areas at Coll's Cove, but there is much much more. The full official guide is still being produced due to continued development, and (pending some access issues) will be available soon. Please feel free to contact me if you want any more information.
