The Southern and obvious buttress. It is the longest, highest, and most climbed upon feature there. A handful of multi-pitch climbs are here including some fun single pitch climbs.
From the parking at Cemetery Rd. move onto and follow the train tracks North (right if facing the Susquehanna River) and the South Buttress will be the first and obvious section you come to. +/- 3 minute walk up the tracks from the parking area.
