Great route. Only thing keeping it from 5 stars is the length. Great holds the whole way, but I just didn't have the head to hang on the entire time while placing gear. Fell twice.

Great hike to the rocks, great view of Western Maryland, tough overhung route but great hand holds once you find them.
