Sun Rock 5.6 4c 14 V 12 S 4b  Pennsylvania : The Northwest : Panther Caves
Multiple trees at the top that will require 30ft slings for TR setup.A bit of a clambering start to a ledge that is a bit difficult to get onto the face of. Falling off the ledge may allow you to deck with rope stretch.Once on the ledge, straight forward climbing staying to the left for most of the route and moving right as you go up. The last move that would allow you to top out is well over 5.6 so topping out is not recommended....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
