Description 

The mother of all the crags at White Rocks. It’s the highest and largest of the three main formations, offering some of the best routes. You can do all the routes on Jim’s Wall as a single pitch, or they can be divided into two (2) pitches to get the most out of the climb. Its overall height is approximately one hundred twenty five (125) vertical feet.

Getting There 

From the lower parking lot at the water towers access gate, walk up the water tower access road. Take a left turn at the perimeter fence gate and walk along the perimeter fence to its north west corner. Up the bank and to the right, follow the trail crossing the state boundary line. Follow the trail up to the base of Jim’s Wall and Pillar #2.

A classic located between Jim’s Wall and Pillar #2. Start climbing in the cave, were it is possible to get a foot on each side of the chimney, stay outside and chimney all the way up to the top.Placing pro up through the chimney is scattered and not real apparent at first, a real challenge to find and place good solid placements from a chimney stance. Be creative, it’s all there!...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
