Since the mid 1960ís, the landowners of the right side of Donation Rocks have supported informal recreational access to the cliffs on their land. However, after discussing the legal situation with their lawyer and insurance agent, the family has decided that the liability risk is too great for them to continue to allow climbing access.

As of July 3rd, 2006, the right side of Donation Rocks is closed to all climbing and visitation until further notice.

The Climbing Conservancy of Central Pennsylvania (C3PA), an Access Fund affiliate, will work with the landowners to see if there is a solution that benefits everyone involved.

As you may know, the left side of Donation Rocks (different owners) has already been closed for similar reasons. So, until further notice, please respect the wishes of the landowners, and do not climb at Donation Rocks.

If you would like to stay up to date with this and other local access issues, please visit, and sign up to receive more information.


The Climbing Conservancy of Central Pennsylvania, Inc. (C3PA) is a nonprofit corporation that works with the climbing community, landowners, and local government to protect the climbing areas of central Pennsylvania and their environment; to ensure legal, responsible access to those areas; and to promote the value that these resources and the climbing community provide to the region.
