  • Seasonal Falcon Closure: Update MORE INFO >>>
  • Areas on State Game Lands may face full hunting season closure starting in 2015 - please read and respond MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    You can rappel from the top of the practice face down a bolted rappel line with a single 60m rope.

    From the top, traverse carefully to the left corner of the buttress to a smallish tree with two rap-bolts by it's base. The bolts are hidden behind some rock, so it's tough to find. There is a tree with slings and rings about 20 feet above this rap station if you need to protect this approach (it is loose/slippery). Rappel on a single 60m rope to a second set of rap-bolts hidden next to the second large tree below. (-Larry S.)

    I haven't managed to complete this route yet, I'll update this when I have. Here's what i know so far:P1 - Move up the bottom of the practice face to the ledge by whatever means you want. Set up a belay halfway between Drifting Arrow and High Falls.P2. Head straight up, aiming for a weakness in the roof above. There are a series of scary stacked blocks that you pull either directly over, or around on the right. If you step left you will gain a long ledge. At this point, I went left and up to th...[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
