Three or so boulders with routes within 2 minutes' walk of the southbound parking lot. One set is on the rock with the "Battle of Germantown" plaque on it, next to the lot. The other two are uphill along the Lincoln Drive bike path.

Getting There 

Drive Lincoln Drive south through Wissahickon park, turn into the small parking lot on the right. The turn comes up fast, just stick to the right lane and be ready.

Forbidden Boulder (traverse) V0 4  Pennsylvania : Southeastern Lowlands : ... : Forbidden Boulder
Hop on either end of the boulder with the Battle of Germantown memorial plaque on it. Traverse the path of least resistance for an introductory V0ish route. Take other lines or eliminate holds for more tougher problems, or to avoid seeping mud and moss in spots. You'll get similar reactions as on the Kelly Drive Boulder since it sees a bit of foot and bike traffic....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
