He posts on here fairly frequently. I think you can search him out somehow.

Lots of people try it. I think there has only been one person (in the 5 years I have been going) that actually got up the climb.

One of my regular climbing partners works it now and again.

Wait a minute... the guy writes a Falcon Press Guide about crags all over WV, VA, and MD where he didn't put up any routes, but there's no beta on one of his lines back in homestate PA that is actually worthy of some historical documentation as a first?



Priceless...

Ok, for route information go to:
http://www.readingrocks.com/Downloads/birdsboro.pdf

There are now more than 70 climbs at BBO. If you are going to the long slabs PLEASE wear a helmet. This area was recently developed and it's still rather dirty and loose.

Also, we are conducting the second annual climb and clean event at Birdsboro the weekend of September 26th. Come give something back, have some fun and join your fellow climbers for a fun weekend.

Finally, please contribute to the bolt fund (there is a box at the crag) as we are actively replacing anchors and bolts. The funds for these bolts come from generous climbers and our climb and clean fund raising effort.

Enjoy the crag!

Or anywhere else in the New? I don't know how many routes he's put up there but it's more than a few.

Not really a good example, maybe I don't climb there enough (Bubba City) but I'm not a fan of many routes in Bubba City. That place is a big choss fest.

I wasn't commenting on the quality of the routes, merely the fact that he's put some up.

I wouldn't go that far. It is an interesting place with some great climbs, some not so fun climbs, and a few loose rocks.

I love it...

Bubba City is not only comprised of Sandstonia and Beer Wall

Ames, Headless and Central Bubba contain some of the most bullett proof rock in the gorge

True, some especially fun gear routes down there. Horst is most well known for Sandstonia/Tattoo development recently.
