Yes, you can mock lead at Stover. But, you really can't test your gear placements because the rock can be really soft.

I think you should go to the gunks, hire a guide service and learn how to place gear. Then practice a ton. You can go to gunks and place gear within 5 feet of the ground, bounce test it etc. Stover is not the greatest place to learn.

I don't remember if there are bolted routes, I haven't been there in years. I really don't like the rock at RS.

There is sport climbing at Birdsboro. It's an old quarry, the rock can be a bit suspect there as well. Lots of bolted lines from 5.3 to 5.14. You have to lead, as there is really no top rope access.
