Mt Minsi at Delaware Water Gap (far eastern PA) has perhaps PA's longest routes; several 3 pitch and a lot of 2 pitch and also 1 pitch, for a total of about 100 climbs. Most have pretty good protection, but they're not sport climbs.
Considering just the multi-pitch routes my favorites would be:
Voyage of the Damned 5.11-
Raptor of the Steep 5.10-
Osprey 5.6
Pain Builds Character 5.10
High Falls 5.8+
Boca Roca Grande 5.6
Subterranean Humanoid Lobes 5.9

Its actually closer to 130 on the PA side of DWG, plus another 100 or so on the NJ side so a worthwhile place to stop if you're in the area and want something a little more adventurous than the Gunks. But given that it takes 5 hours driving to get across PA (give or take), saying which end you're interested in would be helpful.... Wink

Im looking for trad climbs I can do sport but not a huge fan of bolting. I am located in south eastern part of pa around lancaster. So climbs in the eastern to central part of the state would be best.
