Perched in the alcove of the second pitch. The route cuts up and left here, obvious but neither easy nor unexposed. Photo: John Hoffman  The corner on the first pitch makes for fine bridging.  Climber: John Hoffman, Photo: J Ely.  A four-year old on Lower Green Bucket.  The climber in question could not understand where the name came from, and insisted on calling the portion she did 'Sand Bucket.' Go figure.   The Rocky Island's 'North Wall' on a grey calm day.  Photo Dave Rockwell  The Knob provides one of the most picturesque spots on the Potomac for watching the kayaks.
