I had someone tell me yesterday that a climber bought the property and opened it up to climbers! She said they were working on clearing a trail. Hoping to go check it out soon. Smile

Here's the full low down.

Always check for up to date climbing information about PA.

Here's the dilly.

Stone Mountain Adventures bought the land for their summer camp. There was an adopt-a-crag cleanup and trail building event last month that was a great success, we had 50+ people, we cut four new trails, and we had a great party hosted by the Stone Mountain family afterwards.

This land is still in PRIVATE LAND. Respect it as such.

In order to climb at Donation Rocks

1) Download the sign the waiver located at
2) Keep this waiver with you while climbing at donation rocks
3) To do otherwise is trespassing and you will be risking access for the rest of us

4) Since the land is owned by Stone Mountain Adventures, they have a right to use it first and foremost for their camp activities. If you see them at the cliff, they will generally reserve one of the three main areas for the day. Please don't ask to share it with them, and pick an unoccupied formation.

5) Do not bring large groups, there is only so much parking (about 4 cars max).

6) Only climb on the right hand side of the road (the side of the road with the stream, and the new trails)

7) Make sure other climbers have their waiver as well. We climbers have been graciously given permission by the Stone Mountain family to be their land stewards. If you see someone without a waiver, ask them to leave as they must have a waiver to climb. If you see someone doing something they shouldn't, like littering or damaging the rock or the area, ask them to leave. If they don't leave, do not attempt to force them.

7) Check c3pa for updates and closures
