Description 

This area offers stronger climbers with a bit more challenging climbs than the main crags. North facing crag and can sometimes receive a strong bite of wind if climbing the near winter season.


Getting There 

Take Comus Road to the intersection in Stronghold with the Sugarloaf Mountain entrance on right. Instead of turning right into the park (as for the main climbing areas), continue straight ahead on Comus Road a short distance to an intersection with Mount Ephraim Road. Turn right and take Mount Ephraim Road about 2 miles to a small pulloff (only holds two cars) on the right, at the trailhead for North Peaks Trail. Follow a blue-blazed trail about 15 minutes uphill to an overlook on the left. This overlook is the top of White Rocks.

Where Eagles Dare is located where the left most black rope is.  <br />Force Ten (5.10c) is located where the right most black rope is. IMO - FT was much more stout than WED - but then again it is a totally different style of climbing

Start by climbing The Sherpa Connection and at the seam go straight up. A few thin edges and small knobs provide a passageway up. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in MD

After driving down Mt. Ephraim Road you will come to a sharp turn after coming down a hill. Right before the turn is a dry (depending on the time of year) creek bed. There is plenty of parking - just don't block the fire road gate. After parking continue North along the road till you come to this trail marker. Be aware that the Blue Blazed trail intersects the road twice, and if you take the southern most blue blazed trail (heading back up the hill you just drove down - assuming you came from Comus Road) you will be going away from White Rocks.
