Description 

This block is located down the hill from the rest of The Knobs blocks. The climbs are very high quality.

Getting There 

From the approach trail, head right to reach the corridor between the Main Block and the Mungo Jelly Block. Don't go through the corridor, but head right between the Mungo Jelly Block and the Lickmaster Block. Continue past these blocks and follow a faint trail to the right of another block with a few routes to its end. Continue down over the hill until you find another block. Most of the climbs on the Far Block are located on the opposite side if approached in this fashion.

This is a really cool route, and if you like crack climbing, it's worth aiding through the crux just to reach the crack above. Start by stemming your way up to reach the 2nd bolt. Make a dyno to a poor hold and then clip the 3rd bolt (crux). From here head right to the point where the arete meets the crack above. Follow the crack to the top. As of 8/10, these are still the original bolts. The bolt protecting the crux is a spinner, use caution. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
