Access Issue: Frequent Peregrine Falcon Closures about Feb-July on MD Heights, Mandatory Sign in for Maryland Heights (not during Covid). Closed to climbing, VA crags, Jefferson rock, and all rocks along Shenandoah Street. Note: All parking is closed along Sandy Hook rd. Details


Climb the white-streaked black rock using occasionally good holds to a small roof. Undercling in the crack to reach a pair of "bucket" holds, kick a little bit and reach up to another flat hold in order to get fully past the roof. The fun isn't over. Climb up non-trivial rock past the bolt to a wide ledge. From here you can either trend left (5.10a), go straight up past two old bolts that have been chopped (no bolts or hangers; 5.10+), or step right and work your way up the blockier stuff (5.8). Finish the last moves on easy ground.


Right of Sceptre Of Might


Two old bolts, or gear anchors depending on your route.
