Tamaqua Climbing Areas Locations

The main area is located in the notch at the south end of town on the east side of RT.  You can see this rock right behind the buildings off the road and it is also visible from Burger King at the end of town.  The quarries are harder to find.  If you hike east along the north side of the ridge behind the cliff you will come to the next rock outcrop/quarry.  it is 30 feet high and easy to miss.  It is essentially in a pit in the woods.    You can hike a long ways down the ridge to find other rock.  It involves a bit of exploration though.
