Please respect the closed / no tresspassing signs posted near the pyramid. The rest of GS proper remains open to members and daypass holders. MORE INFO >>>|
The warm-up area is the first cluster of boulders you come to when you arrive at GS. Problems here range from easy to hard, but an abundance of easier lines combined with its location make this the perfect place to warm up.
First Boulders reached at GS. 10 minutes from the parking lot, 5 from the road.

There's a sit and a stand. The stand goes at V3, the sit at V4, although in my opinion the sit isn't all that difficult. The problem itself is a little contrived, as the giant jug out left is off. Apparently you have to stay near the arete. All that being said, it's a fun problem with some interesting balance. Try it. ...[more] Browse More Classics in PA

Does anyone know what the problem to the right of Karmic Power is called/grade? My friend and I didn't have a guidebook and it doesn't say on here.

No Moss, V9? I think there's something in between the two but it might either be an open project or dumb. No Moss starts in the crimp seam on the far right of the Karmic Power boulder.

This is also called the Upstream Arete area. The problem on the right side of the Upstream arete boulder that you refer to is a V8/9, like Seth said. It was first done by Matt Bosley in 2004 after being tried by many locals in the year prior. It starts in the seam on 3/4 pad crimps with one high foot chip, slaps to a perfect but hideously sloping lip, then a quick snatch to a jug. This problem is one of the absolute best of it's grade range at any diabase area, Haycock included. It is also one of the most powerful and simple problems on diabase I have seen. The slopers are plain amazing.
The similar looking climb to the left of No Moss is a project. It's features and holds are almost the same as those on the climb to the right, but with less feet and no jug to toss to. The starting crimp seams are textbook, the sloping lip is worse, and the top slab has a few tiny grips. One would need to get established well on the sloping lip to attain the upper slab crimps with control. I suspect it is no easier than V11. When completed, this project will be one of the best hard problems in Pennsylvania.
