About the Boulders

Conglomerate boulders litter the shore of one of Pennsylvania’s most interesting bouldering areas.

Located 90 minutes drive from downtown Philadelphia, The FE Walter Dam is a locals favorite nestled in the gorgeous Pocono Mountains. 

Several hundred Gunks-like conglomerate boulders lie along the shores of the reservoir and nestled at two popular wooded areas, and four relatively unknown areas within a mile of the dam.
