I think most people might find the liability aspect of this prospect intimidating. You might want to check out the outdoor courses offered by the Climbnasium. That way you'll get some certified (and insured) instruction, which is well worth the $$$ in the long run. 717-795-9580.
Regarding your other related post, a 60 m. cord will let you toprope just about everything at Chickies, provided you have at minimum 50 ft. of static rope or webbing to anchor to trees at the top.
BUT you need to know how to build a safe anchor even then, so I wouldn't recommend rushing into anything if you're not 100% solid on how to do that first.
Another point is that Chickies can get very crowded on weekends and nice days; you might get lucky if you just go and see if someone is willing to share their setup with you. If not, there's still lots of fun bouldering and fourth-class scrambling all over the place.
