Climbing Area Description
Very popular bouldering area in SE Pennsylvania. About 1.25 hours from Philadelphia.
Close to a hundred established problems, much more in potential.
Climbing is best described as very crimpy; lots of seams, small flakes, dime edges and ledges. Occasional slopers when coming out of caves or around aretes. Strong, static technique is valued over athletic, dynamic sequences here (even the throws need pinpoint accuracy here).
Best times are spring and fall (winter can be good, but it gets cold and stays damp after snows; summer is brutal with poison ivy and bugs).

A favorite of Philadelphia area climbers (and more, approaching the area).
