Access Issue: Beginning February 1st and lasting until July 31st, a section of the Nockamixon Cliffs Natural Area in Delaware Canal State Park will be CLOSED TO ALL ACTIVITY. Details
Beginning February 1st and lasting until July 31st, a section of the Nockamixon Cliffs Natural Area in Delaware Canal State Park will be CLOSED ALL ACTIVITY. This closure is to protect an endangered species nesting area during its most sensitive time. As a governmental organization dedicated to land and environmental stewardship, it is our responsibility to ensure the best possible outcome for this species that has decided to nest in the area. In this case, recreation must take a backseat to wildlife conservation. Closed areas will be posted with signs; the closure is located in the middle of the cliffs, with areas at either end open to normal winter activities if conditions exist. Both Delaware Canal State Park and PA Game Commission officers will be enforcing this closure. Due to the species being protected by many laws, including the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, failure to comply with the closures could lead to very hefty fines - up to $5,000. We appreciate the understanding from the ice climbing community, as we recognize that many of you are environmental stewards yourselves and want to see these creatures flourish. So I appreciate your patience as we enter into a new mode of operation, and I thank you for helping the species by obeying the closure.
Vary rarely will this climb come in but when it does you better climb it before it disappears again. This is the second left most climb in the Main Gully Amphitheater. Very close to it is the climb Pencil. Very rarely will the pillar touch all the way down to the ledge. You can possibly do some mixed climbing to get up to it.
This climb is located in the Main Gully Amphitheater and is the second left most climb next to Pencil. Climb the first two pitches of Main Gully and traverse left onto a skinny ledge where the start of the climb is.
