Location: PA : Southeastern Lowlands : Birdsboro Quarry : 9. Giant Wall (Long Slabs) : High Steppin' (5.8)

Comments: As the name implies, high step your way up the slab, many, many high steps and hand foot matches get you to an overlap, where you pull through a vertical section and then climb the last bit of slab. Location: This route starts behind a detached block about a third of the way up the hill.

Comments: Ghetto Palm felt pretty tame compared to Bulge Aria, the crux was one move above the first bolt involving a big reach to a crimp and pulling up on it, the rest of the pitch was pretty tame.

Comments: This felt pretty hard for 5.9+, maybe I did it wrong, but the crux came after the 2nd bolt and involved some balancy moves on small features to move through a bulge. The rest of the climb was pretty mellow.

Comments: Start on the vertical face to the right of the slab start the start is marked by an old fence post, work up to the overhanging face making some awkward moves on sharp holds, the crux seemed to be making the last move before the rap rings. There are a few places on this climb where you don't want to fall, or you will be hitting the low angle slab below you.

Comments: Climb up through the drilled pockets of Faint, but after the second bolt rather than traverse out right on the slopers of Faint, continue straight up to the ledge above passing a bolt. From the ledge head straight up following Don't Screw with my Disco through the overhang. Names for this variation include Fanisco and Don't Faint on my Disco.

Comments: Start on the easy slab to the right of monkey girl, work up to the overhanging face making some awkward moves on sharp holds, the crux seemed to be making the last move before the rap rings. There are a few places on this climb where you don't want to fall, or you will be hitting the low angle slab below you.

Comments: The sidepull hold at the crux broke sometime last year, so the crux at the second bolt is a bit harder now.

Comments: This route is to the right of Faint and the hardest part of this climb seemed to be at the first bolt, afterwards the climbing is easy and there are good rests on pretty big holds.

Comments: Second route on the main wall, 4 bolt line next to Arocknophobia, this climb is listed as 5.8 on the route guide.


Location: PA : Southeastern Lowlands : Birdsboro Quarry : 2. Orange Sunshine Wall : Iodine-125 (5.11a)

Comments: This route has 3 bolts and shares the starting holds of Gym Dandy, then blends into Bottom Fishing. The holds by the 3rd bolt are dirty and there is a bunch of loose holds - even by birdsboro standards.

Comments: This route is really height-dependent, if you are tall and lanky its pretty mellow. As everybody has said the gear down low isn't ideal, but the gear afterwards is great.
