I would really like to know what the "locals" think about the recent development as well. If you know who they are, please have them e-mail me at "snurfmaryjane@yahoo.com" or send me a PM here and I'll give'em my cell phone. No trad climbs are being bolted anywhere around Harpers Ferry or Maryland Heights. Just a few good lines that have never been climbed and don't take good gear.!

What's the score with this new development? How many climbs went up? Are they hard? What style of climbing?

Thanks.

There were about half a dozen when I was there a few weeks ago, and lodi said he planned to bolt a few more. They're in the hard 10 to easy 12 range, mostly overhanging with good holds. The two lines I climbed were at least as good as any other sport type routes I've done in maryland.

Other than maryland heights, friction wall has the best sport routes. Other than just the slab 5.10b, there's some hard bolted routes on the other wall there (they're hard to miss). Most of them have drilled two finger pockets and aren't very good, but one of the lines going up and right from the start of it is very good, and the one furthest on the right is pretty good too.
