DescriptionAlthough Breakneck is widely known for it's sport climbing, it is also home to some of SWPA's hardest and best boulder problems. Located on the cluster of boulders just below the cliffline, you will find something worth doing in every grade range.
People have been bouldering here for a long time, at least since it's been a sport climbing destination. In my attempt to collect all the correct information from over the years, please forgive my inaccuracies and oversights. Most of my information comes from Andrew Garman during his time spent here around 2005. If you know something I don't, please let me know!
Private Land Details
Popular belief is that the rocks are on State Gamelands 51 while the trail and parking are on private property. According to the map on the Game Commission Websitepgc.state.pa.us/pgc/game/ma…, the northern boundary of the gamelands does not start until the Casparis area (south of Breakneck). The land is actually owned by a private company, possibly logging. Regardless, the locals seem to be friendly and do not cause much fuss. Ensure that it stays this way by packing out your trash and do not block any of the roads with your vehicle.
