Fun climb. Lots of crimps and thin ledges to start. Nice big jugs higher up. Footing is tougher - hard to smear due to the rock being so weathered and smooth. Good route to throw in some finger and fist jams, heel hooks and the like. You can also climb to the roof area, traverse left and play around on the roof. It's a fun one to top out on. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Maryland
