Description:

From the "pit" at base of the wall locate the perfect thin crack that is "Center Stage and All Alone" climb this pitch (a great A2 in its own right) up to the fixed nut anchor on a good ledge shared with Long and Hard. From this belay step ten feet down and left then follow the short left facing corner, and then up to the two bolt belay under a roof. Tension traverse right then follow the left diagonaling crack up and over the roof to the line of dowels/bolts below the follow overhang. Move through this to a huge ledge and the end of the aid section. A final nice pitch of 5.8 crack climbing over two short walls leads to the summit. This may be Marylands first and only Grade IV!

Descent Options:

Walk up the hill from the summit and reach the trail. Heading right will take up back down to Sandy Hook road at the opposite end of the tunnel.
