Working with first ascentionists going back to 2000, Justin Ridgely, Tim Rose, Patrick Andrews, Travis Gault, Brian Brotherton, Matt Bosley, Justin Smith, Chris Bursey, Gus Laffey, Dan Yates, Eric Jerome, John Brunson, and others, I have worked with Mid Atlantic Climbers (Chris Irwin) and The Access Fund (Eric Murdock) to put together a comprehensive boulder sheet that the Park will have available to visitors. This sheet will contain boulder locations and problems to lower the impact on the area our community might have by making it easy to find these boulders. Once available I will post it here in Topos section, till then i have added a bunch of the great problems on this page.
