Access Issue: 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 Websitepgc.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.
Could be the best line in SWPA. Start low down in the pit matched on a large left-facing flake. Climb up the gently overhung face on perfect coral-esque crimps. Unlock the right sequence and you'll get to the heady but easy topout.
