A single, secluded cliff amid a sea of chossy un-climbable nothingness. It is set in a ravine with a small stream. With very little breeze available, the bugs in the early spring are man-eating. Beautiful view of the Potomac though.

Update: Have found a handful of boulders with great potential. Will be cleaning and putting up lines over the fall season. Hope to have some new stuff posted soon.

Getting There 

Park at the trail head for Maryland Heights. Walk along the road until you come to the first "No Parking Anytime" sign. Climb over the guard rail and follow the stream uphill for a couple hundred feet. The cliff will be on your right.
