Some beautiful boulders, features and problems can be found in this area. Some of the problems and/or boulders are spread about, and some are concentrated. Nice and ugly, highball and one-move-wonder, static and dynamic, roofs/steep overhangs to slabs; this area offers a wide variety of climbing.

Per an early developer of the Rock Run Ridge Area that wishes to remain un-named "People have been climbing there since the 90's. John Derr & Brendon Steger have developed much out there along the ridge and adjacent ridges in the 2000's; as well as a dedicated crew from Williamsport in the early 2010's."

From the parking pull-off there are boulders spread out below the road, down hill, but what's mentioned here is up hill.

Getting There 

1.2 miles past the Godzilla Boulder, Main Area parking pull-off (on the "upper road", taking a left at the fork) pull off and park. If you look left, up hill, this area is straight up. Roughly a 10 minute hike up hill to the cliff and largest concentration of boulders in the immediate, small area.

Sit start matching hands on a nice rail, move into a nice crimp then a somewhat big move to a really awesome (and distinctive) jug. Using the arete out right climb to the top. The first three or so moves are money for sure, fun problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania

I heard that there may be a guidebook coming out soon that will feature this area. Check in at if you're interested.

I know a lot of these problems and boulders have names, I just don't know them. If you do please contact me and I will update or correct. Accurate information is super important.

Pictures are your friends here! This is not a well traveled area with well beaten paths. Use pictures as often for reference to help orient easier/faster.
