Description 

Looking for somewhere thats slightly off the beaten path yet extremely simple to find (given that you know how to get to The Caves!) Head over to the Big Area and make your way around the many boulders that make up this section.

This area is often overlooked and its evident on the amount of growth slowly taking over the boulders. Make sure you take a good brush (or two) with you if The Big Area is on your agenda.

Getting There 

Make your way down the Caves trail and stop about 15 feet short of L'Angle. When L'Angle is but a stones throw away from you, turn and face up the hill. The 2 massive boulders you see just slightly uphill mark the beginning of The Big Area. Now I know youre thinking to yourself "2 big boulders...in an entire vast view of nothing but talus. Yeah right, how am I going to spot that?" Rest assured, when the leaves have all fallen, you'll know exactly what youre headed for.

Start at the bottom of the pit with a RH sloper and a LH gaston on a good crimp. Make a few easy moves, then enter the crux by reaching out to a horrible LH crimp and continuing up to the lip via a bad right hand pinch. After hitting the lip, climb up the relatively easy slab to the top of the boulder....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
