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


This route follows the left leaning crack, that starts at the left side of the cave on the right side of the cliff, halfway up the cliff to a right traversing seam/horizontal created by a weaker rock unit. At that point it moves right along the horizontal seam to finish at the top of The Paymaster. Gear is good in the bottom section. Along the right traverse portion it is not as good and sometimes the rock has some lichen or is damp or slightly dirty due to the water and plant growth. Be solid at the grade because the crux is during the traverse where the gear isn't as easy. The route is listed as 60 feet because is zags.


Left side of the cave.


Preview the route on TR. My recollection is a regular set of cams but memory can fail.
