It gets plenty of sun so there is a far amount of thorns at the base of the main cliffs. There is also some boulders in the area,but may be overgrown with vines.
Approach: From the climber's parking lot,walk east on the canal trail to the I-495 bridge. At the bridge,turn right and hike to the Potomac River. Walk up river until you come upon rock. This area is located directly across the river from Boucher Rocks.
