1 or 2 days?! so from quebec to florida to denver to hueco?

how about a little more local for starters, say 1 or 2 hours from baltimore.

Blue Rose 5.8+ (Ilchester) near catonsville md. Short but one of my favorites. The onsight lead is no gimmie. fingers/hands/fist


Rocks State park (25 minutes North of Bmore) has a bunch

Smoke and Ash 5.11 Classic fist.
Strawberry Jam 5.8 Great gear to top of pinnacle.
Both Breakaways (5.9 and 5.10)

Black Crack at annapolis Rock (in frederick) Stout 5.9 that is worth humping up a rack for.

Old rag (sperryville VA) has the best.

Strawberry fields 5.9 Splitter Hands
Dobie Gillis 5.8 Corner
Bushwack Crack 5.10
The The 5.13 fingers

Should get you started. If not head to Twall (11 hours)
and set up camp. You wont have to touch a face hold for weeks.

Enjoy.
