A collection of short walls form 25 to 70 feet tall and one free standing pillar. Some of the walls can be linked together to create a multi pitch climb to the top of the cliff. There are some good routes here in this lesser visited section of Maryland heights, just beware some walls have loose rock and ledges can be bushy.

Getting There 

The direction on the main page “Maryland Heights” will get you to the base of the cliff on Sandy hook road. Head up the trail starting along side the white stone building. Just befor you reach the sign wall continue to the left moving up the hill side and passing the large Gully.

Follow an arete up and over a roof (crux one) to a pin and optional ball-nut placement. Move left to the arete (crux two) and finish up the arete to the anchors. Use the anchors; topping out this route puts you right at the overlook, and we don't need to be tempting any tourists in walking over to the loose edge....[more]   Browse More Classics in Maryland
