Description

This is an undeveloped bouldering spot near Clarion, Pa. Boulders range in size from small to 40 feet. Bring a brush to clean as these boulders are probably never climbed before and can have some moss/growth on them on non-south facing sides. One ledge is possible to top-rope (about 30 feet high). Rock is sandstone and good quality for climbing. The nearby area is great for camping and very secluded with few visitors. You may also check YMCA Camp Coffman to find pay-per-use cottages and camping areas along with a fun park with ziplines and a manufactured climbing wall.

Getting There

Park near YMCA Camp Coffman entrance (near the spring on the side of the road). Walk upstream along the sandy river about 1 mile following the path (path moves away from river at times). Look for the orange triangle shaped trail markers. When you see the boulder with a deer carved in it (on your right side, geolocation below) walk up the hill to find the main boulders.

Bat Conservation | How You Can Help

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

Hey Deer Rock climbers, Ken Hull here. I’m working with Rob Schorr, a researcher at Colorado State University, to help him spread the word on 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!
