Centrailia Bouldering

Centrailia Pennsylvania has some interesting bouldering areas hidden in the hills above and around the town as well as directly off a road  just outside where the town used to be.  This area was incorrectly called Hot Rocks but the original developers of this area named it the Cinder Blocks and it should be referred to as that. Whatever you call it there is some pretty good conglomerate boulders to climb on right off of a major road.  Access is easy and has been no problem in the three decades I have been climbing here but be aware that this is reclamation land and there could be problems in the future.  There is some rock climbing here as well on a short cliff.  Routes harder than 5.12 have been done here and there are a few really good leads here if you like tough finger cracks.
