This area contains the three ramps just left of the train tunnel. The widest ramp, Ramp A is in the middle with B Ramp on the right and the narrow C Ramp on the Left. Ramp B is quit popular offering almost 200’ of low level climbing. Finding gear placements can be tricky in a few spots.
The direction on the main page “Maryland Heights” will get you to the base of the cliff on Sandy hook road. Head up the trail starting along side the white stone building. Walk up under the sign wall and C ramp starts at the thorn bush chocked left facing corner. Walk right to reach A and then B ramps.
