Same weather and facing as Safe Harbor south.
The routes tend to be more spread out.
Also the routes are steeper.
The grades are a little more 'gunks like also, which is totally fine. #keepnorthstiff
On sunny days there are many hikers and bikers on the trail.
Recommended gear: 60m rope. 10 20cm draws, 3 "alpine" draws and 2 shorter sport draws.
There are also a few mixed/trad lines.

Or, you can park at Chestnut Grove parking (GPS 39.948447, -76.432095) if visiting Chimney of Horror section thru Euro wall. (1+ mile walk) This will put you on the rail trail in middle of the crag.
Finally, you can park at the bottom end of the crag on Observation Road if visiting Catfish Cliff through Cemetery Wall areas. (1+ mile walk). This approach is not simple or easy compared to parking at the lot at the far north end. After walking a section of road from the parking area, hike down the very steep section of trail to reach the rail trail. At the bottom of the hill you'll find yourself near the farthest south wall (Dam Wall). Coordinates here: (39.931881, -76.400958)
The numbers on the area pages here are for the mile posts along the trail.
