Description

A sort-of isolated location where nature is slowly but surely overtaking the remains of an old rail-cut. Most of the rock here is highly fractured and rapidly eroding out of the hillside due to the blasting that was used to clear the way for the rail lines. I went to this place mostly to practice bolting, top access, and cleaning but found some rock worth climbing. Unfortunately the only rock worth climbing here (if you consider any of it worth climbing) is near a highway overpass. No issues with passersby being bothered in my experience, but do not night climb as you will absolutely draw unwanted attention as drivers go by. The rock is a mixture of very flaky friable schist and a more solid rock similar to that at Birdsboro. The rock "worth climbing" is roughly 30 feet tall. There is solid rock underneath in most areas but almost everything needs extensive cleaning and trundling first.

If exploring endless alley please bring a trash bag and pack out as much as you can. The easiest access is from above as the area adjacent to the base of the climbs is slowly but surely becoming a pond. Please make sure your anchor isn't across the trail along the top rim, and please don't leave fixed lines overnight.

Getting There

Park wherever makes the most sense to you and won't get you in trouble. Many ways to approach. Both top and base access however I am beginning to doubt whether the area at the base of the climbs ever actually dries out so I would reccomend rapping in. Bring boots you don't mind getting muddy if you approach from the base in any conditions other than drought.

Poison Ivy, Sumac, and Oak Warning

I long thought I was immune to these rash inducing plants but alas it would appear I am not. I've pulled roughly 150 feet of oily leafed vines off the rocks and will likely continue to pull more as small pieces take root again. For those with serious reactions to these plants, I would steer clear for a season or two. The cleaned climbs are clear of these plants now, but I imagine they are all over the area so just be aware, or be smarter than me and wear gloves while cleaning.
