This is a very common beginner's climb at Great Falls. Climb the dihedral and be on the lookout for finger locks in the corner. I've watched numerous newbies get a bit frustrated on this - somewhat technical - moderate. So if you're introducing somebody who's completely new to climbing think about some of the more straight-forward, ladder-like, climbing to the left as a warm up. Beware that excessive rain can swell the Potomac and flood this area. For more information see the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club's "Climber's Guide to the Great Falls of the Potomac."
Access the route via the first left-hand (north) departure from the River Trail: about 200 yards from the beginning of trail as it leaves the large open area with the picnic tables.
