So, I don't know who can fix this, but the GPS coordinates are way WAAAAAAAAY off. They took me to Shaffer Rock the other day.

There's actually a feature that people adding routes have the option to enable that will not allow people from New Jersey to find crags. I use this option with all the crags I add to this database. Maybe that's what happened?

Those coords look good to me. Note that a lot of the roads you see around there on Google Maps are gated. The best bet is to park at 39.903828, -79.567554 (at a gate) and walk in from the top. Much easier than the hike in from the bottom.

There are some trail directions (it's not clear) posted in other places but you'll have to do the search, sorry.
