New Meetup: Annapolis Rocks - one more outdoor trip

From: Tim M.
Sent on: Monday, November 2, 2009 12:17 PM
Announcing a new Meetup for The VA/MD/DC Rock Climbers Meetup Group!

What: Annapolis Rocks - one more outdoor trip

When: November 8,[masked]:00 AM

Annapolis Rock
21843 National Pike
Boonsboro, MD 21713

Time for one more outdoor trip before winter!

This is a day trip to Annapolis Rocks - which is nowhere near Annapolis. Instead, it's up near Fredrick, MD on the Appalachian Trail. The routes here are moderate-to-difficult, so this isn't a great beginner's trip. There are some very nice routes in the[masked]a range, including "Black Crack", a classic 5.9 that I'd like to bag. There's some info at this site but the guidebooks have more route information.

The only downside is the hike to the cliffs - 2.5 miles of rolling hills, carrying climbing gear - and then 2.5 miles out at the end of the day.

We'll meet at Shady Grove metro at 8am, and carpool up to the trailhead. You can also meet us up there (either the trailhead or the cliffs) if you prefer.

Meetup info
As usual, I'm starting out with a low limit and a wait list. The more climbing ropes we have, the more people we can include. Please post if you can bring a rope. The maximum group size is 12 people (if we can get ~4 ropes).

If it's below 50 degrees or raining, the trip will be cancelled. In that case, I'll send an email by Saturday afternoon.
