The White Rocks Classic!! Start at the large tree on the left end of the ramp and climb the prominent, right angling crack to the top. (30 feet off ramp or 50 feet from ground)
Directly under the overlook.
Lead this route with a light rack of stoppers and small-medium sized cams.

Outstanding route. Definitely worth adding to your tick list if you live in the area. This is likely one of the best routes in Maryland. If you start on the ground (which I do since I bring my dog) the first 20 feet is easy. I use a medium sized nut and a medium sized hex to protect until you get to the ramp with a tree you can sling. The tree is in front of the beginning of the beautiful, 30-foot diagonal crack. It eats gear. I place a #0.4 BD cam first, then you have plenty of options for cams up to #3 as well as hexes and nuts. The climb is slightly overhanging and pumpy. It's more handholds than handjams.
