Description Suggest change

The classic route at Ilchester and maybe in all of Maryland. Packs three cruxes in thirty feet of climbing.

A burly first move over the roof to a decent rest jug, tricky jams lead to a stance under the rood and the final "Blue Rose" move over the hang to finish. When you finish look at the large welt on the back of your right hand to find the Rose.

A proud on-site for any Baltimore climber. This climb has been led, free-soloed, done blindfolded, aided, and probably climbed more than the all the other climbs in Baltimore combined. If it’s open, hop on!

Location Suggest change

Located on the main face at the obvious crack on the left side of the wall. Start with good finger-locks underneath a small roof.

Protection Suggest change

Most often Tr-ed, but is perfectly leadable. The gear while abundant can be strenuous to place and people have taken ground-falls trying to punch through.
