DescriptionThis is a climb that is located very close to Silverthread Falls. (to the left) This climb forms from ground seepage and is reliable, even more so then Silver Thread Falls. At the top there is a big tree that you can use as a top rope. You might need to use a tree farther back depending on where you want to climb on the curtain.
If the waterfall isnt completely frozen and the ice is to thin to walk across at the bottom, from the the board walk, walk to the right side of the water fall. Traverse across the the waterfall and back to the start of the climb.
Descent: You can walk off from the top of the climb. Walk back (away) form the climb until you reach some easier terrain. From there walk left down hill until you reach the board walk where you can walk back left to where you started.
LocationFrom Dingmans Ferry ( Intersection of PA-739 and US-209) go south on US-209 for 0.2 miles. Turn right onto Johnny Bee Mountain Road. From here the road forks, go left at the fork and travel another 0.5 miles from to the visitor center. This is considered to be the access road. This road maybe closed from time to time in the winter. If it is you just have to park at the gate and walk up the access road 0.5 miles to the visitor center.
From the visitor center head right and you will see a board walk path leading into the forest. Silverthread Falls will be the first water fall you come to. Climb over the railing and up to the start of the climb.
To see if the access road is open you can call 570-588-2435. They will be able to tell you if it is open and if people have been climbing there.
