Private Land Details
Popular belief is that the rocks are on State Gamelands 51 while the trail and parking are on private property. According to the map on the Game Commission Website pgc.state.pa.us/pgc/game/ma…, the northern boundary of the gamelands does not start until the Casparis area (south of Breakneck). The land is actually owned by a private company, possibly logging. Regardless, the locals seem to be friendly and do not cause much fuss. Ensure that it stays this way by packing out your trash and do not block any of the roads with your vehicle.
DescriptionA route similar to Cannabis. This one is the left of the two routes on this block.
5.6 seems a fair rating, as this route is no easier than Eclipse (5.6) and distinctly more technical (benefitting from a backstep here, a gaston there, etc.) than the adjacent 5.5 (which, like Eclipse, enjoys a few no-hands rests). While neither of these lower routes are particularly exciting climbs, the view from the anchors is the best at Breakneck. (And they're the only two that get consistent sun!)
