Rock Climbing --- 9/4/2015 - 9/9/2015 --- Birdsboro

Labor Day Week with Erin in Philly.

Went to Birdsboro for the first time. Directions on Mountain Project and the Birdsboro web site are pretty stark for a first time visitor (or just plain wrong). But we managed to find the trailhead and the quarry without any significant issues. On Saturday we started at Zorro Face where we climbed Liken' The Lichen and Face-O-Meter. Had those been the only climbs we did, we likely would never return to Birdsboro. Chossy, dirty and squeezed are all appropriate adjectives. After that we went to Orange Sunshine where we climbed the namesake route and Jay's. Both much better in quality. Honestly, you are climbing in a loose and dirty quarry. Best to only get on routes with the most stars. Ok... I suppose that holds true everywhere, but especially at Birdsboro.

After a night parked legally (according to my conversation with a very friendly, non-dothraki-beard Birdsboro police officer) we had an hour Sunday morning to get on a few more climbs. At Main Wall we climbed Itching To Climb and Hog Nose which were both excellent.

A great week in Philly! We also went biking, hung out with Marci and family, had dinner with the cousins, slacklined, and generally had a lovely time!
