Safe Harbor “South” Crags Re-Open!

Date: 12/15/2011

We are happy to report that after more than a decade in limbo, the crags at Safe Harbor in Pennsylvania have been partially re-opened to climbing. The Access Fund has been assisting Eric Horst and local climbers for over 10 years. With the recent relocation of the high-tension power lines, both Amtrak and Conestoga Township have agreed to allow climbing to resume along the rail trail in Conestoga Township. The cliffs along this section of the old low-grade railway comprise what climbers refer to as Safe Harbor “South”. The cliffs upstream of the dam (Safe Harbor “North”) remain closed, pending Manor Township’s acquisition of their portion of the abandoned low-grade line. If parking is limited, consider another crag to avoid blocking the narrow road. Stay tuned for more details and opportunities to help make access sustainable.
