Description 

These are bouldering areas along the Caves Trail, from the east end, to the Caves. I collected these notes combined from Char Fetterolf's and Rob Holzmann's published guides, searches online, combined with hiking the area before I started climbing. Unfortunately I moved out of state before I had a chance to do my tour of Haycock, so I hope others will chime in with notes to improve these descriptions.

These are boulders along the Caves Trail, from the west end, to the Caves.

Park at the Hanger 18 lot, and follow the trail past that area. Keep right at the junction; the left fork would take you to Area 51.

You'll reach bouldering areas from this end of the Caves Trail in this order. I've used L or R to note whether it's on the left/north, or right/south side of the trail coming from the west/Hangar 18 direction.

Bokow boulder

Little Fluffy Clouds area

A few minutes east up the trail from Little Fluffy Clouds, and immediately before Dubeck, follow a side trail left and uphill to reach 3-Star.

3-Star

Dubeck

After Dubeck, the trail reaches the Caves.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from Hangar 18 towards the Caves from the west, or from Top Rock Trail to the Caves from the east.

Start with a flat square hold and climb the prow up and right, finishing up in the dihedral on jugs to a nice top out. An amazing hanging prow feature. *credit to Char for the Description as this was taken from the Haycock Guidebook....[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
