Description 

Similar to High Rocks at Ralph Stover State Park, but fewer, shorter, dirtier routes, and a longer, tougher approach, and more complicated pro and anchor situations. A ground up lead area, almost all trad. Location of coords is approximate. One of several climbing spots referred to as the Edge.

For more information, see the Bucks County Parks and Recreation department's Tohickon Valley Park page. Paid camping is available right in the park, along with hiking, mountain biking, and swimming.

Do you get here from the same parking lot as stover? Don't mind the hike just don't want to run into a boat load of people after hiking a few miles...
To find out there is a parking lot right above

Hey D, no, I did hike from High Rocks my first time here for some arbitrary adventure! But there's no need.

Park in the big, popular paved lot, where the swimming pool access is (not the other one for the camping area of Tohickon).

Enjoy! My friends and I did our first (very short) trad leads here, hope you find it similarly memorable.

Just letting you all know I posted a database of routes at the Edge, a total of 31 routes, some time ago on rockclimbing.com in hopes of avoiding existing routes being retro-bolted.

If some one has the ability to transfer that information to MP that would be great, otherwise I will pick away at it.

Thanks, Tom Stryker

Hey Tom, that was the beta me and my friends used to climb there when I was still living in Pennsylvania! If you're down to have the same content here, I'm glad to help. I guess whomever gets the urge first can move things here, and if it ends up being me, I can transfer them to your ownership with my admin superpower (ha) so you'll still have credit (and advanced editing powers yourself) for your content when it's reproduced here.
