About CRAG X:

The climbs are a little short(30ft), but due to the short approach make a good warm up area for other crags upriver. The sandy floor make it a good area for bouldering with soft landings.
Approach: Park across the Old Angler's Inn on MacArthur Boulevard.Hike down to the C&O canal to the Billy goat Trail located upriver(about 5-10min).Once on the Billy goat Trail hike for about 12 mins untill you come to a dried-up creekbed/"wash". In another 125 yards you come to a rocky section of trail with a dropoff on your left. Spot a short,upstream-facing cliffband with a large,flat,open "beach area" at its base. This is Crag X
