Jim,

The stuff in Elk SF. I had been to the stuff off the hiking trail years ago. You know the trail with the nice rock passage that splits it. I dont see why people like it so much. The stuff near the Barillium Oside is not much better either. I guess people like it though.

If your interested I know of a spot identical to Hunters Rock. Its a Hunters sister area near Elk State Forest. (Not too far outside the park that is. Its not actually in Elk state Forest). It has bolted sport lines, and tons of boulders.

Hunters occurs in the ridgely member of the old port formation. This is the stuff that is the prime fined grained sandstone like fontainbleu hp-40 or so ill.

We've scoped the entire formation in the state. This has yielded

Hunters
power cut
the pinnacles near jackson corner
stone nation
chilcoat
huntingdon north
pulpit area
lewistown near the jewish cemetary
game lands south of hunters
the sweet pinnacles being destroyed north of mapleton
the 22 boulders
the boulders south of mapleton

And that's about it for that formation.

The stuff in elk is much younger and gritstone. It can't be anything like hunters.

Jim,


If you are serious about doing something about the situation at Bellfonte, and it sounds like you are, then lets do it. Your are right about sending out the climbers voice but we actually have to talk to the owner or it will never happen. A rep for the access fund told me at an Access meeting last year at Wildware Outfitters that Belllfone was an issue they wanted to adress. He said he spoke with some local climbers (I think it was someone from the shop) and they said they did not want any involvement with Bellfonte.

It seems that you are ready for involvement now however.

Lets get together with the corporation and see what can be done.

If we sit here and muck around any longer on websites like we have been doing, the place will be filled in.

There are a lot of options we can discuss land trust, purchase, etc. What do you say? Lets work on doing something.

Send me a PM if you are interested. Perhaps we can scedule an access meeting with any groupes, local climbers etc.
Thanks
~Rob :D

Fleamodee,

To answer your question about Bear Rocks. Look on a PA gazetteer. Find Wallace Creek near Black Moshannon SP. You can easily find the location of Bear from here if you have been there. You will also note the State Game Lands and the # parcel Bear Rocks is located in.

If you make the long walk in from Rattlesnake rd. Then you are walking on private property to get there. If you come in from Black Moshannon SP you are walking in through State Park land and then into state Game lands--the location of Bear Rocks.

People assume the rock is on private property because it is a shorter walk to go through private property to get there. The rock is in Game lands and can be accessed by walking through public lands. Mostly all of that land that is private the owners dont care if you are there anyway, or dont know either. The area is so remote the park does not even know you are in there.

This is starting to get crazy.

Do you really think we haven't checked? Do you not think we don't wish it wern't so?
