Watershed property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

There are a number of crags and boulders strewn about the watershed property, of which the most prominent crags and boulders are in the Prettyboy and Loch Raven areas. But from what I'm told, Baltimore City does not care for/allow climbing with in the boundaries of the watershed property so I'm adding this for the sole purpose of historic reasons as climbing has taken place in the past.

You can also hike, horseback ride and on some trails mountain bike. Also during the fall (September to January) the areas are opened to bow hunting (with permit).

Getting There 

The watershed property is scattered throughout Baltimore County.

Once in the corner; layback, jam, work the face or stem your way to the top. Rated X because the bottom half is unprotected.At the top you can see the old rema...[more]   Browse More Classics in MD
