Getting There

Start at the Cunningham Falls parking area, near Hunting Creek Lake (near the Houck Area) and follow the upper (Cliff) trail. Follow the Cliff Trail (Yellow Blazes) a few hundred feet up to large clearing with several prominent large boulders. The first boulder you come to is the Flying Squirrel Boulder. There is a blaze on this boulder, it sits on the right of the trail as you walk up from the parking lot.

OK, I've added three problems. Let me emphasize that I thought they were very high quality (other than the Belly, I thought Special Relativity was the best problem in the area) and extremely fun to climb. I graded them all on the soft side (nothing in the area felt sandbagged) so folks should give 'em a downgrade as needed. Oct 6, 2017

Conor, I don't have any objection to you adding those lines. I didn't do a ton of climbing there, myself, but if someone gives me or you more info I'll be happy to update. Oct 4, 2017
Absent objection I will add three problems to the area, along with a beta photo showing the lines: Special Relativity (v5/6); Special Relativity Right Exit (v4); and Moral Relativity (v4). I don't believe these are FAs and I apologize if someone has given them names already, but I can't find any information on these lines and I tried to pick thematic titles in keeping with General Relativity.

Does anyone know what problems are established on the Jonah Boulder to the right of General Relativity? I climbed three problems there today, each somewhere in the V4-6 range. (I'm new to the area and don't really know the MD grading conventions, but they all felt a bit easier or harder than the Belly and Flying Squirrel dyno.) The problems started seated on a good crimp rail, with obvious exits left, right, and center. I figure all have been climbed before. Oct 1, 2017
