Excellent climbing on three main sections of cliff. The cliffs are made of of a tilted bed of limestone that were exposed when the area was quarried years ago. Both face and crack climbs are prevalent. Several of the face routes were put up 20+ years ago, so the bolts may be suspect. Also care must be taken when placing gear in limestone.
See the GPS location. In general, park on the street discretely and discretely walk into the quarry off of Armor Run Road.

El Crackitan 5.9+ PA : Bellefonte Quarry
This is a finger to wide hand crack that starts at the far end of the upper wall. In an old guide book the author said "your sole reason for existance as a climber is to do this climb". I agree.The crack starts with finger locks for the first 50' or so then after a fingery traverse with slopey feet the crack widens to hands with a fist or two thrown in for good measure till you reach the top.
