Carderock Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Carderock is an exceedingly popular climbing area located along the north bank of the Potomac River, just outside Washington, D.C. Featuring cliffs up to 60 feet high and a 2-minute car-to-crag approach, the area has long been an after-work favorite of D.C.–area climbers. Weekends are likewise busy, as beginner and intermediate climbers infiltrate from other metropolitan areas, such as Baltimore and Philadelphia. Add “corporate outing” and climbing school groups, and you’ll understand why this is, per square foot of rock, one of the most highly used areas in the country."
