DescriptionThis is the longest climb at Maryland Heights. You could probably add about 50 vertical feet if you continue the left"ish" traverse across the D slab and sign wall but it would be way more traversing than vertical climbing and the rock becomes real poor.
1st pitch-Climb the corner (face to the right of corner if there is to much vegetation) up to the second solid ledge you come across.
2nd pitch-Start traversing the corner/face to the left (A slab face). Make your way across the face at about a 45 degree upward angle. Until you top out at the far left side of the A slab. The lower portion of the second pitch has some rather large loose rock. A variation is to traverse a pitch straight across the A slab to the left corner and do a 3rd pitch to top out. If you want to do this climb in two pitches, I'd recommend climbing straight up about 30' on the second pitch in the B slab corner/face then make your way left across and up the A slab. This would enable you to avoid most of the large loose rock.
LocationThe route starts at the first obvious slab/corner to the climbers left of the railroad tunnel.
