Meyers Mountain Cliff
About Meyers Mountain Cliff:
Meyer's Mountain is a small bump of earth located in Northeastern Pennsylvania just north of Scranton in a little town called Montdale. Most of the mountain is on State Game lands 307, which is a good thing, since this makes it public. There is no camping on State Game Lands however so you would have to find somewhere else to crash.
The cliff here is small. 20-25 feet maybe at the highest spots and if it were not for the poor quality of landing zones, this would be primarily a bouldering location. The ground just under the cliff is very steep leading down the mountain, and an unlucky fall could turn a climber into a piece of tumbling rockfall. I would suggest setting up a toprope (it is very easy to reach the top via short 5.2s), or bringing along a crew of spotters and some crash pads.
This is not really a destination worthy of a road trip, but if you are in the area, wanna see what it has, and do not mind the approach, by all means give it a shot.
