Description

The Knife Wall is a series of low, vertical faces left of the Chief Block in Catoctin Mountain Park. Punctuated by a striking, full-length crack amidst the bone-white lichen, the Knife Wall features sharp-but-good holds for fun, easy routes up an easily protected face.

Watch your fingertips - some of the holds are quite sharp.

Getting There

Follow the beta to Jabba the Hutt, then follow past around the Chief Block. The Knife Wall is the lichen-covered wall just left of the fissure.

Note: The Knife Wall only comprises of the mostly-vertical climbs between the fissure and the tree, and does not include the start of the overhanging sections of wall further left.
