Face the Roof 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  MD : Annapolis Rock : Faint's Roof
Shorter route but good for a warm-up. Start up a level from the main Faint's Roof area, just across from Ounce of Perception. Mostly blocky hands and feet up to a small roof with a concave bow in it. Pull through the bow to the top. Start variation: could be started as a boulder problem in the small "cave" to make the route more fun....[more]   Browse More Classics in MD
