Location: PA : South Central PA : Rune Stones : Rune Stones Central : Funk Dyno (V1-2)

Comments: Not the most aesthetic stone, but its super solid and, albeit this isnt the biggest most badass dyno, it offers some big air. The top outs all there but it isnt a "give me", youll have to work a little for it. Great feet to launch from, not terribly difficult, just super fun!

Comments: This is one beautiful, but short, crack! Hands down one of my favorite at GS. I highly reccomend taping. I did a shit tape job once before climbing this problem and I had scabs on my hands that wouldnt heal for over a month; super gritty stone for sure. If you're in the area and wanting to sink some sweet jams this is the problem to get on!

Comments: Short people definitly have the advantage with this one. There is a sloping but good right foot edge directly under the starting hand holds, and a micro-edge for the left foot. This will put you in a classic scrunched frog position; I go left hand to the lip and after you gain the sloper there is a bomber positive spot for your left heel up on the lip that Ive found to be key.

Comments: There is ample camping at Blue Run Rocks. There are a few established camp sites around, please try and use them instead of making new ones. A very popular camp site that can accomodate multiple tents and has a fire ring is on the trail in IF: you continue going straight up the hill (there is an off-shoot trail that goes off right if going up hill, that trail bypasses the camp site, The Main Attraction boulder, the Campfire boulder and the Lichen Wall Area; the off-shoot trail does sta... more >>

Comments: Solid, solid route. Super fun route and definitly worth the effort. Fairly sustained for the first 20ft.

Comments: If you are willing to lead on gear this is a must for the area! Thin gear for sure. The crux and the entire climb is able to be well protected; there is an old piton or two still in place. I dont clip them as theres no need and they're rusty. Ive seen someone whip on one and it held; definitly be careful if you choose to clip the rusty relics.

No top anchors.

Comments: Parking: easiest access to the Highlands area is gained by parking in the pull off with the blue blaze (on the tree). The Highlands area is on the opposite side of the road from the blue blaze, straight across from the blue blaze keep walking through the woods to small cliff side.

Easiest acces to the Northern area is gained by bypassing the blue blaze pulloff and parking in a pulloff just South (before) of the obvious quarry that'll be seen on your left. Contour the quarry (open dirt road at t... more >>

Comments: Great warmup. Fine little endurance traverse if you run laps on it.

Comments: If you are in the area this place is really cool to explore. Narrow paths in-between formations (stone maze'esque), caves, funky and fun stone that is less-than-vertical, vertical and overhanging. Plenty to play on including a few easy cracks.

Worth it if you're already in the area.

Comments: There are 1,001 places to traverse here. If you don't have a partner, rope, proper gear, etc., you can still log some mileage for sure.

Comments: I love it K! If you want to lead this route (anyone) I highly suggest using ONLY the crack for the hands all the way and only "allowing" your left foot to touch the face. This makes it more enjoyable and challenging for sure. At the top of the left-most hand sized crack you will see a thin finger crack that traverses left for a few feet then goes vertical again. Stick with ONLY the cracks, no face holds, and it isnt as boring.

Comments: Anyone know where this is located? Its not in Stan Schoonover's guide that I recall and the description here is vague. Im obviously interested in checking this route out. Thank you.

Comments: there is an alternative start; left hand crimp and right hand on a obvious right facing side pull on the face. from this start move up and left to a sloper (the crux to me is latching the sloper) and then up to the original line. the original line and this alternative start merge 2-3 moves up at amazing 2 pad pocketesque holds. the alternative start is in the V2/3 range.

Its all about maximization here. there is an alternative, really fun finish that from the middle section (with the ... more >>

Comments: This place is fun. I recall (havent been here in a couple of years) building the top ropes was easy (nice ramp to the top on the right of the main wall) but required a long piece of webbing/cord or two.

It is vertical or very close to it (the main wall area) and it worth your time if youre in the area.

All exposed rock, roped route or bouldering, on public land should be known to us Central, PA climbers. This place is no Rumney, Jtree or Yosemite but its an option for us here in Central, PA.... more >>

Comments: Be cautious when setting cams here. To maximize the potential that the cam will do as you want/expect (not walk, move, pop out, hold the fall, etc.) DO NOT place the lobes on the pebbles. When the lobes are placed on the smooth pebbles the cams can sometimes (definitly not always) dislodge the pebbles now making the cam too small or straight up pull the cam out with the pebble. Try and aim for the lobes to sit against the solid stone itself, if possible.

Enjoy this fun place and be mindful that... more >>

Comments: The 11 seems to have a little bit of everything (that Ive experienced so far). Getting on top of the ramp down low is a SWEET move that I highly reccomend to anyone willing to try.

Thanks for adding this route and bringing it to my attention Tyrel.


Location: PA : South Central PA : Whiskey Springs
By: The Stoned Master When: Sep 6, 2013

Comments: Whiskey Springs is on the Appalachian Trail (AT) and it can be a great place to link climbing with hiking (multiple climb spots on AT). One example is the White Rock Acre to Whiskey Springs Endurance Traverse. Its roughly 10 miles and has several water sources (bring a filter or all water and go super light) along the way.

It offers lots of endurance and technique training without the gear or partner(s). More information (specifics) on the White Rock Acres page here on mountainproject.com under... more >>

we took a Steripen and we were solid so we didnt have to haul water.

Comments: Don't assume there will be a rappel station set up. Be prepared to figure your own rappel out. Please be mindful of damaging the trees, use gentle techniques like bringing your own webbing/cord versus the, in time destructive, wrap your rope around the tree method (which is appealing for its simplcity but if you're reading this comment you don't have an excuse now).

You've been warned! Thank you.

Comments: Thank you Eric for preserving the history and sharing the beta! Your guide is thoughtful and the pictures are awesome. Thank you.

DON'T assume there will be rappel stations (chains, bolts, webbing/cord, etc) ready for you. On EVERY route be prepared to create your own rappel setup.

Maybe in time we won't need to worry about this but for now we do.

Thank you!

Comments: This is the funnest trad/mixed multi-pitch climb in Pennsylvania I've done so far.

You cannot sew up either pitch so be prepared to be calculated with your pro.

Good job Eric and Rob! Thanks for the bolts (the ease of them is welcome) and the vision.

4 out of 4 stars for the area for sure.

Comments: Great place and totally worthy especially if you're newer to trad or are just looking for a little adventure (approach, pack in water/food, etc). Great place to practice self-rescue, anchors, ascending/descending ropes, etc.

Again not many hard lines so if you're out looking to push your limits this may not be for you (unless your limit is 5.8 or below then enjoy!). If you're looking for a cruiser day this place is great and the views are world class for sure.

Comments: If you want to practice self rescue, anchors, rappeling, belaying, ascending a rope, etc this is the place to do it! Its also high on a ridge (nice approach), great views, sunny, its public land and you can take the dog and family.
