Mapleton Pennsylvania Climbing

Overview: 250′ sport routes
Rock Type: Sandstone. Some descent quality. Some very poor quality.
Access: Sensitive but tolerated.

A 250′ high quarry near the Juniata River. The area has a few good sport climbs if you do only the first pitches. Anything above the first pitch is hazardous and could result in death. Many bolts are in bad shape and the second pitches should probably have never been bolted because they are extremely dangerous due to very loose, large rock. Climb only the first pitches and wear a helmet!









Many a state college climber visits this regularly. I am not including directions because the area does not have totally secure access. Although in years of climbing here I know of no one ever having a problem. If you want more info feel free to send me an e-mail.
