DescriptionNot world-class climbing, but close to State College and PSU.
Top Rope, Bouldering, Possible Trad.
Cliff runs parallel to Spring Creek on the opposite side from Rock Rd. There are multiple faces along the cliff. Around 50ft in most places. The rock in some areas is pretty crumbly and hard on the hands. Good trees for top-rope anchors at the top of the cliff with easy access from around the sides of the cliff.
At this point only the large bowl-like section of the wall on the far right (when facing the cliff) has been climbed. There are 4 established routes there. Still a lot of unexplored climbs at Little Scandinavia!
Will be putting up photos showing the 4 established routes soon.
Getting ThereFrom Penn State and State College take Fox Hallow Rd to Fox Hill Rd NE and go past the University Park Airport. Take a right on Rock Rd. Follow Rock Rd down the hill and park in the parking lot at the bottom of the hill where the road curves.
To cross Spring Creek there is a shallow area to the right of the parking lot when looking at the creek. It is an easy wade across the creek (knee high water). The bridge to the left of the parking lot is a restricted area.
To get to the large bowl-like section of the wall where the established routes are, follow the wall to the right after crossing the creek. You will know it when you see it. There is a little clearing of the trees in this area.
