Pitch 1: Climb up easy terrain to a small indent with a roof. Pass the roof on the left (5.6) and belay on the flat ledge above (100 feet).Pitch 2: Follow the obvious line straight up, passing three small roofs on the way. Use long slings to avoid rope drag as this pitch is nearly 200 feet. At the top of the climb there is a huge roof that you skirt underneath to the left and finish on a dirty, loose ledge with a good tree (Same as Heroine Hypnosis)....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania

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 noting that it is way off the line of Osprey, and positioned in such a way that you probably can't even see it from the climb.

The rap station that Larry is referring to is 15 feet left of the Osprey rap on "Pain Builds Character". Originally it was a pair of old rusty bong style pitons tied together with ratty cord. It makes for a nice first belay on "Pain Builds Character" or "Pleasure Feeds Addiction". You can indeed reach it with a 60 meter rope from the top of Osprey, allowing you to rap with 2 raps on a single 60m rope. Fun tip: use this anchor to toprope "pain" or "pleasure" after leading Osprey.
