Cool rock outcropping that look like one can set up top rope anchors around borders or trees on the top. Have not seen climbers there. Anyone climbed it?

I haven't, but locals have climbed there for a good number of years. At one time it was (and still may be) owned by the owner of a rock gym in Allentown. Rockclimbing.com has some information about it in their route database, albeit very brief.

Big fan or PA cragging.

There is the part of the mountain that Rockclimbing.com describes (thanks Dana!), but I've never been there. I was talking about the other side of it. Park at the dead end of Klapperthal road (google Forrest Hills Memorial park in Reading to find it). Take the trail heading away from the river (right if you stand facing away from the road). All the rock outcropping are just a short walk up the trail, both left and right side.

Thanks!

Next time you're there, grab some pics. Want to see what the potential is. It's about a 90 minute drive for me but if it looks good I'd like to head on down there and give it a go.
