Boy Scout Ledges Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Left to Right...Blue line = Time of the Prophets (...
Boy Scout Ledge is a short, wall sliced by vertical and horizontal cracks with a prominent pointed roof sticking out the right side. While most climbs are on the easy to moderate side, this area hosts one of the hardest rated aid climbs; Spiderman's Route (a.k.a. The Prow).
This is a good area to take newbies. You will often find groups here. Anchors consist of trees and boulders, however the Prow can accept medium size gear.
Follow the green trail up past Middle Earth and up to the stairs. where the trail (stairs) turn to the left, take a look off into the woods a short distance, you can't miss the cliff.
Weather station 4.5 miles from here

Featured Route For Boy Scout Ledges
The Prow Left 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b
: Sugarloaf Mountain
: Boy Scout Ledges
Fun climb up the face and then around to the left of The Prow. Some crack to work and a nice corner. Crux is the final move across the prow. It's right off the path to the top of Sugarloaf (about 40 feet) so you get a lot of watchers. Be careful how you setup your anchors, other climbers have mentioned biners on anchor ropes disappearing into the hands of hikers/schoolkids. You are right next to the Cub Scout cracks which are great for beginners or to learn place gear. ...[more] Browse More Classics in Maryland
