Just south of the Paper Mill Road Bridge, in the woods on the east shore of Loch Raven/Gunpowder river, lie several small rock outcrops with a plethora of boulders strewn about. Most climbs here are boulder problems. But there are some routes pushing 20+ feet, of which one may want to set up a short TR on. Anchors can be long and tricky to set up. Depending on where one is, either gear and/or natural anchors are used.
Park at bridge and locate the fisherman's trail on the southeast side of the old bridge (behind the wall). Follow this past a few boulders to the river and follow it down stream, you will then come to "Fisherman's Rock". At the end of this rock, you can scramble up a 7 foot high rock wall to follow the trail and continue on to the other better climbing areas. takes about 3 to 5 min. to walk.
