Description

This is an amazing area to climb at due to the scenery and history. Climbing next to a 65 foot roaring waterfall is awesome! Climbs are located on the South and North of Slateford Creek at the base of the Slateford Waterfall. These climbs are on shale cliffs and are wet most of the summer. Spring and Fall are good times to climb these or in the winter for mixed climbing. All of the routes are recommended to be top-roped due to issues on the tops of the cliffs.

Getting There

From PA Route 611 turn West on National Park Drive. After turning onto National Park Drive go over the bridge and park on the lefthand side in the small pull-off. The trailhead is at the end of the wooden guard rail, look for a rock spray painted blue at the base of the trail. Follow this trail along the river for 5 to 8 minutes. After crossing a make shift land bridge with a rope handline you'll see the 65 foot Slateford Waterfall. The climbs are on both sides of it.
