Comments: Sorry to leave you hanging Ben. I would guess that it's about 10 feet deep, depending on the wave action at the time. People have been jumping off for years and it seems pretty safe. I did cut my foot on a sharp rock once however. As always, remember to jump away from the cliff.

Comments: If you climb 10's you should lead this, exhilarating exposure pulling the roof into a nice diagonal tips crack.

Comments: This route is fantastic- varied between the upper and lower halves, long, interesting moves and great stemming! Nice view from the top too. BTW I think this has 9 bolts on it...

Comments: One of the best at Safe Harbor, would be a popular slab climb anywhere. Super fun thin crux above the roof.

Comments: A long climb on good rock for birdsboro, the top is definitely harder for shorter folk.

Comments: I think this is referring to Bubblegum Face (name given in recent Fetterolf guide)? Easy warmup that starts on two sidepulls, immediately to the right of bubblegum and left of another unnamed 0+. My first at Haycock.

Comments: Climb to the right of Black Angus, use smearing and the thin seam to make it to good holds out left, then top out. A good intro to diabase climbing.

Comments: I recently moved to Philadelphia and went to Haycock for the first time on Sunday. I was amazed at the quality of the rock, the sheer number of problems and the possibilities for endless bouldering circuits. I have but one thing to ask: would any local climbers please, please shed some light on this wonderful area? Even the simplest of topos, photos, descriptions or links to other extant guides would be tremendously appreciated.

Comments: This is an excellent problem, featuring a cool foot jam/back flag in a pocket while throwing to a high crimp. I don't think it's a 7 tho, I can't climb much harder than 3 or 4 and I sent it third try. Would love it if someone could list this boulder/problem and shed some light.
