Description 

These are the lowlands and rolling hills of southeastern Pennsylvania, south of the Lehigh Valley; geographically speaking, the Piedmont. Philadelpia and its suburbs are the busiest metropolitan area in the state, and many of its climbers issues forth from here, to learn to climb in these humble local crags. Some are found along the banks of the Delaware River and the Schuykill.

Some local favorite spots are Stover for trad pro, the Bird for bolted pro, Haycock for woodland bouldering, and Philly for being tempted by buildering, especially when you've just played a game of Assassin's Creed.
