getting there: What we did was walk about 75 meters roughly East from the parking (GPS latitude longitude approx N39.81204 W77.48292) on the wide trail msrked with blue paint. Then turned Left off that and walked 50 meters roughly North to the top of the cliff (which our GPS gave as lat long (N39.81260 W77.48194).

The pinnacle whose North face forms the left (East) side of the main wall has approx latitude longitude (N39.81255 W77.48152).

Hermitage Cabin: Our GPS places the cabin at lat long (N39.81237 W77.48088)
