It is an ok spot if you are in the area, not really worth driving to. Climbs that are up to about 80ft, with a mixed variety of rock quality, some is a bit loose on the right side of the cliff. The left side which is less steep has more solid rock. Couple of Trad leads possible, and some top ropes. Bouldering in the area if you look around a bit. No bolts. Solid trees at the top for anchors.

Getting There 

Located near the town of Coburn, in Central PA (it's about 40 minutes from State College). The easiest way to get there from route 45, is to turn towards Coburn at the light in Millheim (it is a right turn if you are coming from State College). Proceed into to the town of Coburn, cross a bridge, stay left after bridge, and then turn left on to Tunnel Road. Follow Tunnel Road until you come to a parking area. With a foot bridge to your left, take bridge across the creek, after a couple hundred feet turn left at the "path" sign, and hike to the top of the ridge. The trail takes you almost right to the top of the cliff, it is a steep scramble to get to the bottom, it's easier to just rap down.
