Description 

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.

Once you know the moves it's a great padless circuit problem...[more]   Browse More Classics in MD
