Wish it was longer but a great route none the less. Like Bob Ewing said, a medium nut and hex will take care of the first face to the slab, then 5 or so smaller cams for the crack itself. Very cool route but would not recommend toprope due to swing. Oct 26, 2014

Outstanding route. Definitely worth adding to your tick list if you live in the area. This is likely one of the best routes in Maryland. If you start on the ground (which I do since I bring my dog) the first 20 feet is easy. I use a medium sized nut and a medium sized hex to protect until you get to the ramp with a tree you can sling. The tree is in front of the beginning of the beautiful, 30-foot diagonal crack. It eats gear. I place a #0.4 BD cam first, then you have plenty of options for cams up to #3 as well as hexes and nuts. The climb is slightly overhanging and pumpy. It's more handholds than handjams. Nov 5, 2013
