Local Climbing Areas

Birdsboro

Birdsboro

A retired quarry some dedicated locals have bolted for sport climbing. No toprope access, all routes must be lead ground up. Approx. 1 hour West of Philly. The rock can be loose in places so make sure to bring your helmet!

Governor Dick A.K.A Mt Gretna

A favorite area for bouldering approx 1hr 40min away. Easy access, great trails and great landings make this one of the most popular diabase bouldering areas for the Philly community.

Governor Stable

The Governor Stable Boulders are located on private land approx. 2 hrs from Philadelphia. With sensitive access and limited dates for climbing January 15th, 2017 - Aug 31st, 2017  get it while you can! It's worth the wait and the drive. Be respectful and abide by the GS 2017 rules!

Haycock Mountain

Haycock doesn't have a webpage like PA's other finest bouldering areas , but it does share the same quality Diabase and it's the closest to Philadelphia at approx. 1 hour 20 min. Haycock can be tricky to navigate for the uninitiated, but lucky for you we have a link to the new guidebook app authored by local Philly hardman Char Fetterolf.
