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 is a great problem with big holds and some air under your feet. It flows and is a cruise if you climb above the grade but you still get a little height and head action so you won't be bored with your big bad self. It's basically a traverse with exposure on jugs. You get to be on the rock a little longer that the height of the rock alone.

Start in the dihedral and get up to the horizontal crack with big holds, climb up to the horizontal, traverse out left until you turn the corner and find jugs to head up left a bit but then top out instead of going all the way left around the next arete where you would have to climb up anyway to get to the top. You kind of roll up/around the corner. The top out is the cherry on top since if flows just as nicely as the rest of the moves.

Once you know the moves on this problem it is a great padless circuit problem.


start in the dihedral in the back of the cove under the big roof with a crack through it. see photo
