This is an undeveloped bouldering spot near Clarion, Pa. Boulders range in size from small to 40 feet. Bring a brush to clean as these boulders are probably never climbed before and can have some moss/growth on them on non-south facing sides. One ledge is possible to top-rope (about 30 feet high). Rock is sandstone and good quality for climbing. The nearby area is great for camping and very secluded with few visitors. You may also check YMCA Camp Coffman to find pay-per-use cottages and camping areas along with a fun park with ziplines and a manufactured climbing wall.

Getting There 

Park near YMCA Camp Coffman entrance (near the spring on the side of the road). Walk upstream along the sandy river about 1 mile following the path (path moves away from river at times). Look for the orange triangle shaped trail markers. When you see the boulder with a deer carved in it (on your right side, geolocation below) walk up the hill to find the main boulders.

This is an overhung route. Bottom section is straighforward. Overhang gets tougher. Crux is at the top with tiny crimpers (on the back side of the picture). Front of the top boulder is a much easier route (as pictured)...[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
