This is a highly recommended route... Climb up the short face passing the first two bolts to the base of the roof. Clip the bolt under the roof and make the commiting moves right out over the lip. Pull up to the rest ledge. Shake it out and continue up and left through the bulging crux and continue up to the comfort ledge. Finish on the short easy section to the shuts. NOTE: watch for copperheads if rigging this one on top rope. One seems to live under the rock perched on the edge of the cliff. ...[more] Browse More Classics in PA

A couple of very nice routes, and some others worth climbing, but beware looseness abounds. Be careful what you pull/step on, as some of the stuff is really big.
