Ascent Trip Report

Fun afternoon break. The gravel pit operations are HUGE - larger than the current satellite image shows. To avoid hiking around or through them, Ann Rd at Lansford Road is a pretty good place to start.

The climbing is pretty basic- class 3 or less, though one can do some class 4 if one chooses. The rock is sharp limestone, so I recommend gloves. There is a fair amount of class 2 with lots of loose small rocks and pebbles.
