anyone out there in the philly area climb? i'm new to climbing and live in center city. looking for trees in (and possibly outside of) the city to climb and maybe a few people to climb with once in a while.
Hey folks ~ I grew up in Philly, know the area very well, and pass through every couple weeks on business. I would love to get together and climb sometime... get in touch if you're still interested.
Philadelphia's Fairmount Park has some truly incredible, generally healthy, and large stands of sycamore, tulip poplar, and oak in various places. I am wondering if anyone has established a climbing relationship with the Fairmount Park Commission yet, because there are some remarkable climbs in these parts. There are a couple of places where people boulder and rock climb within the park, which I feel is a good start, but I thought I would ask before going ahead and reinventing the wheel in case the work has already been done. I'm just getting a little tired of the stealth climbs, mainly because I've my eyes on a couple beauties that are right out in the open!
Hey PA people, I don't live in Philly, but I am close. If anyone finds themselves in the Williamsport area, (think Little League World Series,) give me a holler.
Also, I just went through TCIs Facilatator class. If anyone needs help with an event just let me know. I'm centrally located in the state. See ya in the trees.
This thread and this message board are Spookily quiet for the last few years. Hopefully, someone out there is listening. I’m in the Philadelphia area and would love to go climbing. Anybody still active?
I hear you with your description of our Forums as "Spookily quiet." Unfortunately, when Facebook came of age, we lost alot of users. Sad, because we had some really rich conversations here, and people learned alot from each other.
Sorry, can't help you with this one. Only thing I can suggest is that you join TCI and use our Climber Finder (secure tool for members only). I'm sure there are climbers in the Philly area. It's worth a try.
