The Big Wall of Birdsboro Quarry.

A 60m rope will do fine with the lower offs here. It's not really two pitches... it's just got first anchors and second anchors.

Getting There 

From the welcome sign, follow the path to the left. Pass the Main Wall, Orange Sunshine Wall, Slab Climbs, Zorro Face, and Mid Wall on your left. Now look up for steep rock standing high overhead, and you're at the Big Wall.

at the chain on The Streak either bust left traversing on the ledge towards Hinterland and go up to a very interesting roof encounter, or continue up the refrigerator block and head left immediately afterwords. Going left seems to be a bit harder, but continuing up the streak seems to be the most popular. from there work your way up some powerful reaches on crimps and side pulls. Avoid going to far right and using holds on the streak to skip the crux. This is definitely the best route on the wal...[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
