The Chip

5.6, Trad, TR, 40 ft (12 m),  Avg: 2.5 from 15 votes
FA: unknown
Pennsylvania > Central PA > Blue Run Rocks > Lichen Wall


Found left of the chimney of the partially lichen covered wall. An easier crux makes this a nice introduction climb for someone new to the area. Start underneath flake, moving right around flake to ledge, to a nice finger crack crux. Easy finish to chains.


Can go as trad or toprope. Anchors can be accessed via chimney or off the main trail near the designated campsite. A red C4 and various nuts will do the trick.

[Hide Comment] The large flake at the start is beginning to get loose as of June 2017. There are plenty of alternate holds to avoid using this.
It's still there as of 2020. I suggest trying to not use it Jul 31, 2017
