FA: unknown
Maryland > Locust Grove > TimBarb Buttress
Access Issue: CLOSED Details

Description

Route directly next to Timbarb, essentially on the arete. Start on the right edge of the buttress and climb up the black broken rock to reach a small overhang on the right edge. Pull hard to turn overhang to right facing edge; fight the barn door. past this crux, it is pretty relaxed. Follow the obvious flake to the ledge with a tree. From there follow the arete from here, which is protected with one bolt 5 down and to the right from the anchor. Note: Some of the rock here is severely fractured and loose.

Protection

Standard rack. Micro nuts can protect the final 20' arete portion but are not necessary as there is a bolt there.
