Safe Harbor Climbing Page

























Access Update 2010: Safe Harbor is currently closed to climbing. Despite the fact that the entire area was rebolted by a few devoted local climbers, the area is now being heavily patrolled by police. Climbers are being escorted from the area and fined for trespassing. If you climb here now , you will have to face serious consequences. Many other great nearby climbing areas exist. If climbers abide by the current rules and stay away, climbing may be allowed sometime in the future. Check for more info.


Safe Harbor has been a long battle. This area is currently closed to climbing and is a major focus to local climbers. Eric Horst has taken charge in spearheading efforts to allow climbing on the old Norfolk Southernsafe harbor pa climbing rail-bed. In 2006 the area was actually opened for about 60 seconds--just long enough to say: "hey, lets go down to 'The Harbor' and get a few routes in ...oh, never mind , it's closed already"
On a serious note, however, the Lancaster climbers Club and Eric Horst have put in a great deal of effort into securing access.
