Anything near Lake Harmony?  (North_America: United_States: Pennsylvania: Northeastern_Region)

Hey all...heading up to Lake Harmony, PA (near Big Boulder) next weekend and I'm trying to track down any info about rock climbing in the area.

Anybody know of anything? I would be looking for top-roping primarily, as I'm the only one with any experience going, so it would be more of a recreational/instructional kind of day.

Any help would be great. Thanks!

Tilbury near Nanticoke is nice and is all top ropable. Personally, I would drive 2 hours and 15 minutes from Big Boulder, up 115 to 81 North to 84 East to the New York Thruway to the Poughkeepsie exit and climb and boulder at The Gunks.

I live in Wilkes Barre and The Gilded Otter in New Paltz is 2 hours door to door between 75 and 80 mph.

there is fantastic bouldering right in lake harmony. I put up about 200 boulder problems around there from 97 to 2001.

If you are looking for top roping, the closest would be "brown sugar wall" of the other cliffs at the FE Walter Dam--or the devils elbow near there for TR sandstone.

I agree with the above though, Mocanaqua or Tilbury is really good.

what's the location of "brown sugar wall". i've never thought of climbing anything in and around the dam area, but now that i think of it there's probably a lot of decent bouldering at least.

Any beta/directions that you care to share? If you don't want to post publically, just send me an IM through RC.

I would have no issues heading up to the Gunks, but its mostly family going, and I'm not sure I would be able to either justify to them why they should go or why I should be allowed to leave for the day. Nice thought, though.
