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!

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.

In exchange for parking in this yard, we pay 5$ to the owners (not the folks renting the house located on the property). You pay back in town (preferably on your way in) at the house at the corner of Cow Rock Rd and Furnace Hill Rd (106 Cow Rock Rd). You'll see the red box on the wall. If you are approached by someone at the lot asking for the money in hand, you should tell them that the Smalley family has directed everyone to pay in town. (The Smalley's may occasionally swing through to ask if folks have paid--they will not try to collect the money directly though: they'll direct you to pay at the box in town.) If you run into issues, please contact Jimmie Ann Smalley at (724) 277-4889 or (724) 963-8497: she lives close by. Please also contact SWPACC to let us know what happened. Thank you for helping us to maintain a good relationship with the land owners.
