This crag is about a 50-75 yard stretch of cliff above the parking lot for the bike trail. Includes some very interesting features, as well as a small cave. Far left side is the best spot to climb, with some very stable, strange formations. Incredible area for toproping and highball bouldering. Second best wall in the gorge.

Getting There 

Park in the bike trail parking lot. Follow one of two trails up the steep side of the hill, or walk back up road to the dirt road that crosses on top of the tunnel. Follow this road past the Approach Rocks, then turn up onto the top of the hill. Once you hit the trail at the top of the hill, follow it back down the hill and you'll come around the side to a view of the river and the cliffs to your right.

Quick line that we put up in the rain, using the trad gear for the first time. It's found at the end of the cliff, around the corner from End Wall (V1). follows a crack line up some crazy features eroded into the sandstone. The route starts in a little alcove that you have to pull yourself up into, then follows the fin to the left of the alcove....[more]   Browse More Classics in Pennsylvania
