Description

The Southern and obvious buttress. It is the longest, highest, and most climbed upon feature there. A handful of multi-pitch climbs are here including some fun single pitch climbs.

This place offers some interesting climbing. Some routes offer unique (ackward) moves/sections and there is no shortage of R rated climbs. This place offers some fun "adventure" climbing.

Albeit close to Harrisburg, PA this place is no joke (loose rock, weathered rapp stations, free hanging rappels, multi-rappels, etc). Bring extra webbing/cord to create or back-up existing rappel areas. Honestly, depending on what you choose to do here, just bring the same kit/rack you would for anywhere else multi-pitch adventure climbing.

The approach trail once at the base of South Buttress is fairly steep, not terrible but be prepared to walk up hill for sure.

Getting There

From the parking at Cemetery Rd. move onto and follow the train tracks North (right if facing the Susquehanna River) and the South Buttress will be the first and obvious section you come to. +/- 3 minute walk up the tracks from the parking area.
