Nice area. People have toproped and bouldered here for some time. Short walk. Parking only enough for 3 vehicles? If full, Tumbling Run is a short drive away.

Getting There 

I-81 to the "Shippensburg University" exit, Exit 29. Go South towards, Walnut Bottom. Go 4.6 miles from the 81 and turn right onto High Mountain Rd. Stay on High Mtn Rd (through one stop sign where you turn/veer right staying on High Mtn Rd) for 2.9 miles. Park at 1st yellow gate on the right. Walk down the dirt road for 3-4 minutes or so, then there will be an obvious small trail on the left that leads to the rock.

Climbing Season

Weather station 3.8 miles from here
