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.

Getting There 

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.

Fuse 5.9- 5c 17 VI 16 HVS 4c  MD : Harper's Ferry : ... : ABC Ramps
Fuse is an excellent first pitch to "Black Powder" or an exciting start for "C route". The cannon fire from town during the first ascent was quite appropriate as we lit the fuse and then fired up Black Powder.1. Face climb up the wide 4 inch crack. Pull over the small overhang on the right side with ample flat edges above. ** Must see protection comment below ** Move up C ramp for about 25 feet and belay next to the main wall at the start of the thin crack "...[more]   Browse More Classics in MD
