Description

A 60 foot (highest point) cliff with a handful of routes from 5.6 to 5.9, and some bouldering along the cliff to the left and right of the main wall.

Great place to learn and/or to teach new climber "the ropes." Top roping is the norm here.

Stay on the cliff side of the creek. The other side is private corporate property and they will speak up.

Getting There

Off route 16 near Mercersburg, it's an official state park. If need be check out DCNR's web site for directions.

Head into the park (one main road) and head to the back parking area. You'll see a typical state park restroom area, a loop/turn around and a creek. Follow/contour the creek to the right (when facing it) and keep going until you hit the cliff (3 to 5 minute hike).

This place is fun. I recall (havent been here in a couple of years) building the top ropes was easy (nice ramp to the top on the right of the main wall) but required a long piece of webbing/cord or two.

It is vertical or very close to it (the main wall area) and it worth your time if youre in the area.

All exposed rock, roped route or bouldering, on public land should be known to us Central, PA climbers. This place is no Rumney, Jtree or Yosemite but its an option for us here in Central, PA.

Enjoy! Sep 30, 2013
