Shaded wall about half a mile downstream on the trail from the park proper (it's still inside the park though, so there are no access issues). About 35 foot high wall, with a fairly blank, less than vertical face. Good for slingshot top roping, all though scrambling to the top is an adventure in and of its self. Your best bet is climbing up on the left end of the cliff where a few trees grow up the side. For the most part, it's very good solid sandstone but has some shale underneath the overhang. Overall just a fun little place to play around. Takes a long time to dry however.

Getting There 

Easiest to bike or walk there following the trail. A little light scrambling to get to the bottom of the climb. Be careful if it's been rainy, as everything will be muddy.

Climbing Season

For the Southwestern Highlands area.

Featured Route For River Wall

Perry-noia 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Pennsylvania : Southwestern Highlands : ... : River Wall
Easy route that just takes advantage of the natural hand and footholds up the face. A little bit in the way of acrobatics may be required, but nothing too insane. Short, sweet route, perfect for beginners (my ex-girlfriend climbed it the first time that she ever climbed)....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
