Great place and totally worthy especially if you're newer to trad or are just looking for a little adventure (approach, pack in water/food, etc). Great place to practice self-rescue, anchors, ascending/descending ropes, etc.
Again not many hard lines so if you're out looking to push your limits this may not be for you (unless your limit is 5.8 or below then enjoy!). If you're looking for a cruiser day this place is great and the views are world class for sure.
For some specific routes check out www.rockclimbing.com's "Pole Steeple" site. I added this to Mountain Project so that seekers are aware this place exists.
Every climbable rock on public land in PA should be announced. We aren't the West and therefore us PA locals need to maximize our climbing experiences by allowing easy access to the beta. You won't go to this place if you don't know it exists.

I found the place to be exactly as The Stoned Master described.
Rock Climbing & Bouldering PA published by Blue Biner has some good topos on the routes.
