Daddy/Daughter Date!
I will be traveling to Pittsburgh in mid October and was wanting to do some climbing. Initially thinking of indoor areas, but now that I am looking at it am considering packing my full gear and doing some easy TR in a couple areas. Anyone have I out of either McConnels Mill State Park or the Breakneck area in southern pitsburgh? Or other possibilities I should investigate? Thanks.

Approaching the anchors on Eclipse (5.6) at Breakn...
I recommend Breakneck over McConnell's Mill. Breakneck has about 20 sport climbs (as well as 2 trad lines) with easy TR access and a 5 minute approach. McConnell's is also a quick approach (step out of your car) and has some decent top roping and a handful of boulder problems. At about 1.5 hours from Pittsburgh is Ohiopyle State Park which has about 5 sport crags along the Youghiogheny River with easy but long (45-60mins on foot) along the Great Allegheny Passage but time can be cut down considerably if you have a bike. If you enjoy bouldering as well, there is a really nice spot about 15 mins past Breakneck in Dunbar, PA called Coll's Cove. And of course you have Cooper's Rock just east of Morgantown, WV which is about a 90 min drive from Pittsburgh and is home to some fantastic bouldering. Hope this helps.
