Watershed property MORE INFO >>>

Description 

There are a number of crags and boulders strewn about the watershed property, of which the most prominent crags and boulders are in the Prettyboy and Loch Raven areas. But from what I'm told, Baltimore City does not care for/allow climbing with in the boundaries of the watershed property so I'm adding this for the sole purpose of historic reasons as climbing has taken place in the past.

You can also hike, horseback ride and on some trails mountain bike. Also during the fall (September to January) the areas are opened to bow hunting (with permit).

Getting There 

The watershed property is scattered throughout Baltimore County.

This climb follows a series of flakes. Start where the small boulder (V1) sticks up out of the ground directly below a left facing flake. Using the boulder makes the first crux easier. Avoid it if you want to keep a stiffer challenge. Small crimpers, slopers and an undercling will get you to the flake. Power up to the top of the first flake and head to the right aiming for a small right facing flake on good but very sharp/small crimpers (crux). Once you make it to the right facing flake, work yo...[more]   Browse More Classics in Maryland
