The 45 area’s central location and plethora of V0s and V1s makes it a good warm-up for the nearby Shamoo and Smiley areas. That said, the area does house two hard and classic lines worth getting on: Great White (V6) and Exhibit A (V8). It also has a host of moderates including the perennial favorite Fabulous (V4) and the slab Scarlet Lady (V4).

Getting There 

Take the trail beside the nature center into the forest. At first three-way trail junction go Right. At second three-way junction go Left (uphill) and watch for an obvious access trail on Right just behind a large tree. Take access trail into forest a short way and look for the large 45 degree boulder on Left.

An alternative (and longer) approach is to enter from the white blaze trail via Smiley’s access trail. Follow the access trail uphill past Smiley to the 45 area.

Fabulous V4 6B  Pennsylvania : South Central PA : ... : 45 Area
Farthest right problem on the 45. Sit start low on small pinches and make a big throw over a slopey lip to a small seam. From the seam hit the huge obvious jug then cross into another seam, mantle up and it's all over. Really fun....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
