Description

Bouldering over maintained grassyness. But bring your ropes and anchor lead gear off iron bars. Fat-security-dupe will peak around the corner soon after your partner has begun to second and clean gear. At this point every member of the party is obligated to stay still and make no noise. Once he’s gone, continue climbing as usual.

Location

Location: Between South and Locust (Park behind UPenn football field and cross footbridge to baseball fields, you will walk underneath the Railroad Tiers before you reach the fields)

Protection

(On the southern side of the support directly across from the baseball field, begin climbing left corner of support. Climb unprotected 30’ and girth-hitch iron bars. Ascend to iron tracks and climb inverted out on bridge I-beams, hitching for protection. Belay station is built 35’ out. Have your partner clean gear, smoke, then rappel from fixed station.

Aside from UPenn Security - try to be vigilant of people on Walnut St bridge as well. Had someone walking over Walnut St bridge alert PHL Police circa 2003 while we were working up the stone pillars...that was an interesting conversation to say the least.. things have changed and developed significantly in this area since then. Oh, and the freight trains do run on this elevated track actively so.. climb safe! Feb 11, 2013
