Five Finger Block's west face is clean and for the Mills this face sees some of the most sunlight in the entire park. After a big rain it is usually the first to dry up along with being the first to thaw in the spring. Bolts are located on the North side of the West face for around 20-30 foot TR climbs. The rest of the block can be bouldered with numerous variations and top-outs, some bad falls and a pad is helpful. Head to the north end where a small boulder sits on a ledge for easy down climbs or to set up a TR. This is a great place to warm up or for beginners. It is typically a less crowded block.

Getting There 

Located on Rim Road, drive to the main climbing area and follow the right path at the picnic area down to the clean face of the block (west).

The opening moves are the fun of this route and also the crux. A cheater block is often placed for the start of this climb, feel free to move them out of the way and enjoy the opening moves. The rest of the route is straight up with solid large holds. Overall this is a fun little route, one of my personal favorites and one of the better routes in the park....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
