Cruise up right to follow a prow over a ledge and pass an overhang on its right side. Move out right to a big tree. Two bolt anchor below large roof system.After a second time climbing it, I'm adding stars to this route. The climbing is fun, the exposure is great, there's bolts in between gear placements, and the view from up top is fantastic. Along with Suprise, this is a classic Mount Minsi route....[more]   Browse More Classics in PA
