The Adjustor boulder is a large, slightly overhanging obvious boulder with few holds perhaps 15 feet off of the trail. It is midway between where the upper and lower trails split (just after passing the 45 Degree boulder) and before getting to the Highball boulder. While walking into Gretna, the boulder will be on your left, with the problems facing towards you. Rock quality is average and a bit sharp. The draw of the problems are due to their difficulty and easy accessibility.

Getting There 

Hike towards the further Gretna areas. The boulder is along the lower trail. It is about midway between where the parallel upper and lower trials split and the Highball boulder. Almost everyone who walks to the Highball, Prow, and Matrix area will do so by the lower trail and therefore must pass the Adjustor boulder. It is an obvious climbable rock with difficult looking problems. The blunt compression arete of Equilateral on the left and the perpetually chalked thin face of the Adjustor face problem on the right are hard to miss.

Slap one or two moves up to the flat lip with some frustration and then mantel....[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
