Registration is required prior to climbing on Maryland Heights. To register for climbing on MD Heights visit the Lower Town Information Center (however not required during Covid)
Cliffs that are closed to climbing and bouldering are Jefferson Rock, and the various quarry sites and small rock outcrops along Shenandoah Street. Virginia Rock Climbing is close which is basically the Virginia Cliff.
All Parking is closed on Sandy Hook Rd by the County Department of Highways including the trail head for Maryland Heights.
Make a high step up and pull the small overhang, watch out for rope stretch here as a loose belay could result in hitting the ledge. Stand up on the face and traverse left 3 feet on a good hand rail. Make a long reach for a pocket and continue straight up the face. Scamper through the break down and get ready for the final crux. Make a single move using the right edge and hand traverse out left on the overhanging wall using a hand rail just over the lip and out of sight. Traverse to the left side and move up the outer corner to the rappel anchors.
