Yeah there used to be a tresstle bridge that had routes. It may have been destroyed though. A long time ago perhaps.

Might not make any difference to anyone, but a friend of mine and i have done some exploring and climbing at Swarthmore (i can walk there in 5 mins from my house).

The "main" rocks at Swarthmore honestly suck and as anyone who's been back there can attest, they're dangerous. However, exploration of the trails that go farther back into the woods have yielded 3 boulders that have some good variety on them.

I've put up a few lines on the sunshine boulder and the "Bulge" boulder for lack of a better term. If anyone is interested in burning a few hours climbing sometime i'd be more than happy to show people around.

I've found several lines that are harder than V2 but i'd not want to rate them until they've been climbed by some others.

Well there it is on the table. Take it easy all.

Ry.
