This area is primarily a bouldering location. There are 4 tiers/levels of rock to climb on. Closest to the road the cliff is large enough to warrant the use of a rope. South facing, quartzite.

Getting There 

The approach is really short. You can see the bottom two tiers from the road as they are within 100 feet.

This is a great problem, with big holds, some air under your feet, and since it has a traverse in the middle section you get to be on the rock a little longer. Start in the dihedral, climb up to the horizontal, traverse out left until you turn the corner and find jugs to head up and top out. Once you know the moves it's a great padless circuit problem...[more]   Browse More Classics in MD
