Description

Beartown Rocks is a small section of Clear Creek State Park. Most of the visitors are locals who bring their families to check out the rocks and lookout. For us climbers, it is a small, yet quality area for bouldering on some Pennsylvania gritstone! On nice days, expect a few families walking around the rocks or hiking through on the trail. Unfortunately, this location has fallen victim to some graffiti but the climbs are still quality nonetheless. Oh and hey, don't litter!
The ratings we have set on these climbs are tentative and our development crew is very open to outsider commentary. The ratings we have set are rather uncharacteristic of the sandbagged western PA and WV ratings and more based on the ratings we have experienced in the south. Please feel free to comment because we are very open to suggestions!
Roads are not plowed in winter months. Details

Getting There

If driving on 949 South, you're looking for Corbett Road on your left, directly after the State Parks Building. If you go over the bridge and start driving uphill you have gone too far. Follow Corbett for a few minutes unitl the very obvious sign stating "Beartown Rocks" on your right.
If driving on 949 South, the road you're looking for is Spring Creek on the right. After waving to the goat tied to a tree, follow the road for a few minutes and then follow the left bend. The road eventually turns to dirt. Corbett Road is on your left after about a mile and is on the peak of the hill. Follow Corbett until the large Beartown Rocks sign on your left.
The parking lot is right next to the rocks!
