Description 

This area is the next crag to the north of the expansive area known as Cumberhoney Wall. There is a fair amount of junk at along the base of the crag undoubtedly tossed from where the road runs closest to the top of the crag.

Getting There 

This area starts about 700' north of the Jim Pick rock cairn. The arete that marks the south/climber's right end of the area is about 50' north of the large roof that is the crux of "I Wanna Live". The second arete after "I Wanna Live" is Little Jimmie's Arete which is also where the trail directly meets the wall again (in Sisters' Corner).

Beginning where the trail meets the wall in Sisters' Corner, scramble up and right throught the mossy gully (about 8') to gain the blocky arete. Climb up and right another 20' to gain the arete. Continue up, staying inside the left face of the arete standing on good rest stances and placing gear in generally good rock (there are a few hollow flakes and plenty of loose rock among the blocks to avoid). Traverse to the right side of the arete about 20' below the large vegetated ledge to find an eas...[more]   Browse More Classics in Maryland
