Donation Rocks consists of three main climbing walls (with additional smaller walls) owned by Stone Mountain Adventures and open to the public. The 30-50ft sandstone cliffs are mostly top roped with very easy top side access. Trees, boulders and bolts are in abundance here for top rope anchoring. There are some traditionally protected and bolted routes for sure at Donation's, however, the usual happening is top roping here.

There are 70+ established routes at Donation Rocks with the potential for more with some imagination.

IMPORTANT: Climbers are required to fill out and hold on to a waiver when climbing here.

Waiver link; (

All of the cliffs and routes described here on Mountain Project are on the right side of the road when driving in. There are obvious cliffs on the left side of the road (directly opposite the routes described here) BUT THEY ARE NOT OPEN TO CLIMBERS! That property is private and the owners DO NOT wish to have climbing on their property; please respect this wish and represent the climbing community well by staying away from these off-limit cliffs.

Getting There 

Old Hawn Rd,
Huntingdon, PA 16652

The main area is right off the road after passing a deer farm. There is parking toward the top of the road and along Old Hawn road when driving in on your right.

Please do not forget to fill out, plus, have your waiver with you when at Donation Rock's AT ALL TIMES! Thank you.

You can obtain the waiver (again) at:

Donation Rocks is stacked with moderates and below. This is a wonderful little climbing area tucked away that is easily accessible; a great location for anyone in the area looking to climb, especially families.
