Description 

There is not a high concentration of climbs in this area, but it is in close proximity to some of the other more frequented areas. It can be easy to get lost in this area due to the heavy amount of jumbled talus and shrub growth. What the area lacks in concentration, it makes up in quality. Some excellent problems worth checking out in this section.

Getting There 

The easiest approach to this area is through finding the Glass Wall. From the Glass Wall, you'll want to head several hundred yards south. These particular boulders hug the ridge of talus that runs around the top of Haycock. Riding the Elephant and Cup of Tea can be somewhat cumbersome to find given the fact that they are somewhat tucked away in the boulders.

Like many of the classic lines at Haycock, this is all about compression. SDS on obvious, yet low, jug. Dyno up to slopers on the faint lip and then trend leftwards. Climb up the prow and then trend back right slightly towards the topout finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
