Description

These are the lowlands and rolling hills of southeastern Pennsylvania, south of the Lehigh Valley; geographically speaking, the Piedmont. Philadelpia and its suburbs are the busiest metropolitan area in the state, and many of its climbers issues forth from here, to learn to climb in these humble local crags. Some are found along the banks of the Delaware River and the Schuykill.

Some local favorite spots are Stover for trad pro, the Bird for bolted pro, Haycock for woodland bouldering, and Philly for being tempted by buildering, especially when you've just played a game of Assassin's Creed.

Bat Conservation | How You Can Help

See a Bat on a Route, Give Us a Shout! 

Hey climbers, the Eastern Pennsylvania Alliance of Climbers (EPAC) is working with Rob Schorr at Colorado State University to help him spread the word about his bat research. Here’s a message from him about this important work and how, we as climbers, can help.

"Climbers for Bat Conservation is working with climbers to understand bat ecology and why bats choose certain cracks and flakes. We’re a collaboration between climbers, bat biologists, and land managers to understand where bats roost and where large populations may reside. We are interested in finding bats because of a new disease called white-nose syndrome (whitenosesyndrome.org) which has killed millions of bats in North America. This collaboration has identified bat roosts throughout the U.S., and as far away as Norway and Bulgaria. CBC was developed by biologists who climb and they are advocates for climbing access and bat conservation.

So, if you see bats while climbing, please let us know by emailing us at climbersforbats@colostate.edu, or visiting our website to learn more. climbersforbats.colostate.edu."

Thank You!
