Overview: Aside of being short, this little crag offers one of the best panoramas for Pennsylvania sport climbing. If you live nearby this area is a great spot to visit--unless the dam is collecting water and the area is submerged underwater. Otherwise, you can climb on steep rock while clipping bolts above cool waters. This Riffle-esque crag offers a golden-brown colored rock with conglomerate and silicate mix. Be aware that this area is small. But if you like to boulder, it's worth driving from anywhere to come here. This area is some of the best bouldering in the Mid-Atlantic and a great spot for Pennsylvania climbers. Golden-colored cubes litter the shoreline at this fantastic spot. The nearby Atlantis Bouldering Area and City of Boulders can be seen from the crag, as well as The Land of Overhangs, an area with problems up to V9. A comprehensive guide to the 8 areas at The Dam can be found in the Pennsylvania Climbing Guidebook.
