Where I learned to climb.

Alex Badart once had to chase away glass throwing kids urinating off the top of the cliff by swinging hexes.

Then Paul Marshal brought his friend on his last day before a jail sentence to boulder. That might have been when I saw them throwing rocks at rappellers down below.

And I most clearly remember finding the cliff face loaded with hundreds of candle drippings after some Ellicott City 'get together'.
Or the geologists taking samples, seesh.

But mostly I remember the good times, a lot of history and sometimes a ruff and weird crowd.

The main wall at Ilchester, the center of the Patapsco climbing community. Blue Rose is the crack on the left side of the wall.
