It's a butt shot, but it shows the line of the first pitch of Alphonse pretty well. From here, i traversed left to a stance and did a hanging belay because all the gear was knee-height.

Comments: I was on rappel and I tried to get the camera as far from the wall as possible. Also using a pretty wide angle lens which might be exagerating perspective it a bit. I think the composition was just luck though.

Comments: CVRIV - Not really - It's definitely a traditional climbing area, and most of the routes go completely top to bottom (200 feet), with no fixed intermediate anchors. There are only a handful of bolts on either side of the gap, most are just for rappels and require 2 ropes.. There may be a spot or two you can scramble to a tree and set something up, but i wouldn't recommend it. On the PA side, there is some access via the catwalk onto a ledge about 40&@... more >>

Comments: I can't tell if sonething has changed on route, but the belay looks like it's still there. The possible scar looks about 30 feet right of the balay.

Comments: Unless something's changed recently, the bolts are about 10 feet right of the weakness that Open Face follows on the upper half of the wall. see this route: Open Face Slab

Comments: Attempted to add a few more pitches to this over the weekend, starting from Black Wall:

P6. Starting as for Black Wall, climbed up about 30 feet, and began traversing, bypassing the outside corner. We traversed across the Triumvirate wall and belayed atop the lower corner of The Rib, about halfway up the first pitch, at the same hight as the slabs below Friends in High Places.

P7. From there, we went across the slabs below Friends in High Places. We set a belay in the Colorado Corner, but the... more >>

Comments: Definitely climbable if you can find a partner, but the gap is little traveled. Try the Partner Finder, look for people around 07832 and 18013.

Comments: The bolts at the top of P2 are looking in poor shape. They appear to be a rawl 5pc plated steel with metolius rap hangers. The bolts themselves are decently rusted on the outside. Perhaps someone with a little more bolting experience can check them out?

Comments: The top rap anchor on Osprey/HH has been replaced, not sure when for sure, but in the last 2 years for certain. Nice SS Fixe hangers with Chains in a perfect location. A mid-wall anchor has also appeared which allows rapping with a single rope. It's tough to find though, hiding over a tiny ledge 15' left of the first rap line, at a height about 20 feet above the first belay ledge on Osprey. HOWEVER! I don't know if you would reach it on a 60m rope, if you do it will be close. It's worth no... more >>

Comments: Josh - I'm not the most knowledgeable on haycock - but things we probably be pretty overgrown, and with the heat & humidity, the climbing might be greasy. I think i went in the summer a few years ago and the caves trail was practically gone. It's tough to follow when the foliage isn't in. If you've never been and do go, i would start at the hanger 18 area.

If it doesn't work out for you, Ralph Stover / High Rocks is just down the road too, with easy top-rope setups, but that place is an oven... more >>

Comments: P2 can be a popular rappel route, so be aware that the rap goes straight thru the crux of the climb, and climbers below the crux are not visible from people rappelling.

P2 itself is worth doing, the crux is well protected and short, with a little run out above it (don't place gear in the flake).

The opening moves of P2 will probably keep some parties off this climb, the first place you want to place gear is after the insecure traverse onto the face, at which point you're 15+ feet over the GT l... more >>

Comments: Dropping a link to this here because it's important - The PA Game Commission is considering restricting access to state game lands during hunting seasons, potentially shuttering access to many of our climbing areas during the best times of the year.
