hi Pennsylvania and Maryland climbers...

just got back from a few days staying at the Hermitage cabin by Shaffers

i was able to spend some time the last day sketching the face and working on a new map for the top as well

i've uploaded the new topo and face sketch (one with route lines and one without). i also reordered the route numbers in the database (thanks "chronicle" for putting up with my edits) to correspond with the maps.

**

if anything is off let me know, it was only my second chance to visit and climb there and i'm still getting a feel for the place. you could mark up the blank sketch and send it to me and i can update them.

my next trip to the cabin (late summer) i plan on sketching the "face" perspective of the climbs in the pit (#18 - 24)

i would like to meet up with someone who is familar with the bouldering there. i can sketch the Cheese Grater boulder and would like to ID some of the classic routes on it and get them in the database as well. if anyone would like to help out and get together and climb a day, just send me a PM. i can be there in a little over 2 hours from my house, more than reasonable for a day trip to the area.

hope the topos help someone out and are not too far off

long happy trails and safe climbing,

jae

thanks for the nice comments you guys

i honestly do these in just a few minutes at the crag when i have down time, i guess being an artist it is hard to ignore the impulse.

i was hesitant about posting all of my pencil sketches in such an unfinished format, but i'm glad some people are finding them usefull.

maybe someday i'll get around to inking and finishing them off. i'm always just trying to get some beta up for people as quick as possible so they aren't wandering around looking for stuff like i use to.

i've been looking forward to the guide Rob, it seems like it is going to be great with you knowing EVERY boulder or rock over 5 feet tall in PA Wink

enjoy the rest of your summer

jae
