Great place to learn. Good toprope sections and easy to difficult trad areas. Everyone should do the scramble to the ledge above the main wall. Beautiful view. Wear a helmet as there is still a lot of loose rock.
Did an impromptu hike with some trailblazing from the lower lot to the overlook. A very nice view of the Susquehana River was had. After that it was on to our anchors clinic, with an abbreviated toprope climb of the Library before we had to jet.

Beautiful day with Britt and some of our new friends. Most difficult technical work I've done being a strictly hiker/mountaineer instead of climber. Nice views with the exception of the touristic rails and signs at the top. Became a hero for catching my one friend!
Very scenic spot if you can get past the train tracks and, sometimes in the summer, very large crowds. Most of the people showing up there are just onlookers gawking at the climbers. Great views from up on the ledges though, not to be missed!
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
