New Climbing Wall at Lower Paxton Township’s Friendship Center


The Lower Paxton Township Friendship Center’s upcoming climbing wall is the product of a unique collaboration between Weber Murphy Fox and Mike DeCavalcante of the Above Limits Foundation. This 24’ high free standing, fully adaptive climbing tower allows vertical bouldering, circumnavigational bouldering, and top-rope climbing both on traditional belay and auto belay systems.

The climbing holds, routes and padding are oriented for beginners. The wall systems are designed and equipped to also allow folks with disabilities, including folks with paraplegia and quadriplegia, to climb freely using ropes with mechanical advantage. “Climbing as therapy” is the strategic vision of Above Limits, a 501(c)(3)founded in 2009. Expertise and charitable nature is allowing this construct to help revitalize and energize the Center with limited capital cost.
