A small state park in western PA that is more famous for its old buildings and covered bridges than the rock climbing. The climbing is mostly top-roped or bouldered. Some cliffs have bolt anchors other times trees are slung for anchors. The rock is typical sandstone found in the region, similar to T-Wall, but shorter and without as many cracks. Apparently people like to go "sport rappelling" there too.
From Pittsburgh take I-279 north and merge onto I-79 north. Take the PA-488 exit (exit 96) toward Portersville/Prospect. Turn left over the freeway and follow signs to the park. You can get a handy trail map that has the climbing areas marked at the park Maintenance Office.
