Comments: We broke up this climb into three pitches. I led P1 to the big ledge with the pine tree next to the bolted rap rings, using the finger/hand crack just right of and below the pine (per Andy Weinmann's comment above). JV led P2 to just below the roofs. The triangular block I stepped on to start P3 was loose and wiggled under my feet. There's also a big plate with an "X" chalk mark on it that's loose next to the crimps below the first roof. Perfect BD C4 #3 placement below lip of first roof.... more >>

Comments: Does anyone have recommendations for where to build an anchor after topping out of pitch 3? The 12-16" dead pine and 3-4" live pine that are immediately right of the top out don't inspire much confidence.

Nice hand jams on pitch 1. Big exposure on P2. Build semi-hanging belay at end of P2 at fixed pin with a ring on it, backed up with a nut on top and additional fixed pin. Pitch 3 gets easier after bulge.

Make sure the weather is cool enough when you climb this because of the full on sun expo... more >>

Comments: Led P1 on 8/14/15 w/JV (casual and fun). Then I led P2 to the chimney on the East Face of the North Peak, explored the West Face a little, but down climbed the whole way back to the tree atop P1 because couldn't find a walk off to the North Peak summit trail. Does anyone have beta for the walk off, if it's possible? Also, does anyone know if it is possible to use a single 60m rope to safely rap off the Bell Wall on the West Face of the North Peak from the rap rings at the U shaped notch (red ci... more >>

Comments: As of 8/14/15, there was a completely loose piece of rock about 2'x2'x8" on P3, after coming out of the main corner, 15" before the pine tree with a green bird house on it. There were climbers at the base of Thais, so I did not pull it off the wall.

Comments: There's a bolt just above the roof that is hidden from view when directly below roof.

Comments: I second Floyd Hayes comment above from 7/18/12. We climbed this with a single 60m and found the walk off sketchy. We chose to rope up for the down climb into the gully, belaying off a large boulder, because from up top it was hard to see the final sequences of the descent into the gully. We also roped up for the slab climb out of the gully, which is easy if you're comfortable leading 5.7 slab. The bolted anchor atop the slab can be hard to see as it is set into a small recessed area (~ 3 ft tal... more >>


Location: MD : Annapolis Rock : The South End : Black Crack (5.9+)

Comments: Great climb. I found it very tempting to get drawn into the easier terrain of White Arete to the left about 1/2-2/3 of the way up.

An easy anchor set up would be a couple of 20' cordelettes slung around the boulder at the top, with a couple of nylon runners for extension over the final roof with the hand crack.
