Description

Collection of Boulders and short toprope cliffs make for an enjoyable stop-off.

The boulders are highly featured and are great fun with or without a bouldering pad as most of the landings are pretty flat.

Baltimore locals who are very tired of Great Falls should make the drive through Cumberland Gap to come visit this interesting location.

American Grit!

If you get rained out you can stop by the gym at WVU's indoor climbing wall

Coopers is a great place to boulder, toprope, or do short trad leads. All styles of climbing can be found here. majority of climbing in the .11/.12 ranges, but enough for all levels of climbing. Fun place in a beautiful forest. Didn't know it was grit, thought it was sandstone-like rock. Fall is ideal time to visit. Feb 26, 2010

I found this park to be a great place to boulder. I thought the stone had a lot in common with seneca rocks.

You can find lots of places to be by your self and have quiet climb. No need for chalk- leave no trace and access will be less of a problem i think. Nov 24, 2008

There's a few trips worth of top-roping, a couple of trad leads, and a lots and lots of high-quality bouldering on gritstone(?). The area is a state forest but access seems to be a perpetual problem. May 19, 2007
