Location: Pennsylvania : South Central PA : Donation Rocks

Comments: Please do not forget to fill out, plus, have your waiver with you when at Donation Rock's AT ALL TIMES! Thank you.

You can obtain the waiver (again) at:
c3pa.org/donation_rocks/

Donation Rocks is stacked with moderates and below. This is a wonderful little climbing area tucked away that is easily accessible; a great location for anyone in the area looking to climb, especially families.

Comments: I have an earlier version of Eric Beyeler's guidebook in PDF form. If you would like a copy PM me and I will e-mail it to you.

There is no way currently for me to upload the PDF directly to Mtn Proj, it has to be a link to a Web Site where the document is housed. I do not have a Web Site to do that, so just PM me for the time being if you want a copy of the guidebook.

Comments: I believe Rob Holzman's guide includes Pole Steeple. You can find his guide at nextascent.org/pennsylvania-cl.... Pole Steeple can make for a nice family day out for sure. The rock climbing itself is limited to a few routes ultimately, but the overall experience of the place (nice approach, amazing views from the top, super ancient stone, etc.) makes for a good time and worth it as a family day out in my opinion; especially if you'@SEMI... more >>

Comments: Short but fun. There is an alternative, harder start on the super thin crimps shown in the picture. Go from the thin crimps to the horizontal then the little dyno.

Comments: Some gnarly but solid stone below, and some practically flawless stone above. A really sweet problem with some awesome movement. A classic for sure to me!

Comments: I heard that there may be a guidebook coming out soon that will feature this area. Check in at pabouldering.com if you're interested.

I know a lot of these problems and boulders have names, I just don't know them. If you do please contact me and I will update or correct. Accurate information is super important.

Pictures are your friends here! This is not a well traveled area with well beaten paths. Use pictures as often for reference to help orient easier/faster.

By: Kyle Stapp When: Mar 13, 2015

Comments: Don't be afraid to use this place as an outdoor "gym", set up circuits and lap problems. Because the lack of crowds you can knock out 40+ 5.10-5.12a problems easily due to the close proximity of the boulders to one another. Also a fine place to dial in climbing technique and take beginner boulder's.

Because this boulder field is very close to White Rocks/Brown Rocks, it is nice to rope climb some then come to the Rune Stones at the end of the day and wear yourself out on some fun boulders. Good... more >>

Comments: This is one beautiful, but short, crack! Hands down one of my favorite at GS. I highly reccomend taping. I did a shit tape job once before climbing this problem and I had scabs on my hands that wouldnt heal for over a month; super gritty stone for sure. If you're in the area and wanting to sink some sweet jams this is the problem to get on!

Comments: Short people definitly have the advantage with this one. There is a sloping but good right foot edge directly under the starting hand holds, and a micro-edge for the left foot. This will put you in a classic scrunched frog position; I go left hand to the lip and after you gain the sloper there is a bomber positive spot for your left heel up on the lip that Ive found to be key.

Comments: There is ample camping at Blue Run Rocks. There are a few established camp sites around, please try and use them instead of making new ones. A very popular camp site that can accomodate multiple tents and has a fire ring is on the trail in IF: you continue going straight up the hill (there is an off-shoot trail that goes off right if going up hill, that trail bypasses the camp site, The Main Attraction boulder, the Campfire boulder and the Lichen Wall Area; the off-shoot trail does sta... more >>

Comments: Solid, solid route. Super fun route and definitly worth the effort. Fairly sustained for the first 20ft.


Location: Pennsylvania : North Central : Blue Run Rocks : The Main Attraction : Piton Crack (5.10)
By: Kyle Stapp When: Sep 21, 2014

view comment >>
Comments: If you are willing to lead on gear this is a must for the area! Thin gear for sure. The crux and the entire climb is able to be well protected; there is an old piton or two still in place. I dont clip them as theres no need and they're rusty. Ive seen someone whip on one and it held; definitly be careful if you choose to clip the rusty relics.

No top anchors.

Comments: If you are in the area this place is really cool to explore. Narrow paths in-between formations (stone maze'esque), caves, funky and fun stone that is less-than-vertical, vertical and overhanging. Plenty to play on including a few easy cracks.

Worth it if you're already in the area.

Comments: There are 1,001 places to traverse here. If you don't have a partner, rope, proper gear, etc., you can still log some mileage for sure.

Comments: I love it K! If you want to lead this route (anyone) I highly suggest using ONLY the crack for the hands all the way and only "allowing" your left foot to touch the face. This makes it more enjoyable and challenging for sure. At the top of the left-most hand sized crack you will see a thin finger crack that traverses left for a few feet then goes vertical again. Stick with ONLY the cracks, no face holds, and it isnt as boring.

Comments: there is an alternative start; left hand crimp and right hand on a obvious right facing side pull on the face. from this start move up and left to a sloper (the crux to me is latching the sloper) and then up to the original line. the original line and this alternative start merge 2-3 moves up at amazing 2 pad pocketesque holds. the alternative start is in the V2/3 range.

Its all about maximization here. there is an alternative, really fun finish that from the middle section (with the ... more >>
