maryland heights climbing

Maryland Heights is the tallest cliff in Maryland at 300ft and is known for its long easy to moderate trad routes and a handful of hard sport routes. The surrounding cliffs and boulders also offer a great variety of climbing. With a great climbing resource like this, its high time that we take the time to show the park that climbers care about it! This is our first Adopt-a-Crag in the park, and it will be a great opportunity for a good first impression.


Date: November 15th
