Rising 300 feet above the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers, Maryland Heights is the tallest cliff in Maryland. It is known for its long trad routes and a handful of hard sport routes. The surrounding cliffs and boulders also offer a great variety of climbing- including bouldering and top-roping. All of this rock is on federal property and managed by the Harper’s Ferry National Historic Park. Come out spend a morning fixing some troublesome spots on the overlook trail and an afternoon climbing!
