A collection of Diabase boulders along the hill side opposite the road. The problems range from V0-V9, with all styles slabs, roofs and cracks. This area is less traveled so it's a nice way to get away from the crowds if you are feeling like some peace and quiet. This is a separate area from Mt. Gretna proper.

All route and area names are names we came up with. I'm sure they have established names so if you know them let us know and we will change whatever needs to be changed.

Getting There 

The approach in is about 15 minutes. Walk up Mine Rd. for a couple hundred yards then walk into the woods on the left onto the obvious logging road. Walk up the logging rd until you hit the trail turn right on that and walk a little ways up that trail. Turn left into the woods and walk down the hill. You should start to see some boulders along the hill side.
