I am going to have a couple days off in the MD area.
Looking for sport (bolted) climbing - plus anyone who wants to join in. I will be with a group of other outdoor lovers - but they don't climb.
July 26,27, and maybe 29.
Preferably near an RV type park.
Can anyone help.?

no bolt gun. Im not that experienced. I live in TN where there are lots of bolted routes. Thats all I do at this point. From what I'm seeing, it doesn't look like thats the case in the east. ?

sorry, apparently the sarcasm didn't transmit with the rest of my post. I was not suggesting that, in reality, you bring a bolt gun. I was suggesting, in a sarcastic tone, if you want to sport climb in MD you'll need to put the climbs up first as we don't really have any real "sport climbing destinations" in this fair state.



End Transmission.

apparently even explicitly stating that you are being sarcastic is being too subtle on this sight....oh, "le sigh".....Crazy

So I guess I should be looking for some area climbers to show me how it's done in your parts. Any favorite spots that you can tell me about.? The more central MD the better - but I'm open to anything.

Sarcasm...I'm a fan. I've had my second cup of coffee and therefore my brain is now firing on all eight cylinders. Furthermore, my bolt gun is at the ready. Cheers.

There are very few bolted routes in MD. I moved out of the state about 2 years ago, so my memory is kinda hazy by now, but the only bolts I recall were 'secret' project areas put up by locals and never publicized. If you're in central MD, the New River Gorge is probably about a 4 hour drive south-west. If you can swing it, that's the place to go - hundreds and hundreds of beautiful routes.

Otherwise, if you're close to the DC area, Great Falls and Carderock (on opposite sides of the Potomac River from each other) offer a reasonably nice selection of top-rope climbing above the water.
