Maryland Heights

Maryland Heights Professional Review and Guide

"Also known as “Harpers Ferry,” the cliffs of Maryland Heights are actually located across the river from the historic town of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. With the highest cliff in the northern Virginia and western Maryland area, you’d think the rock here would be packed with climbers every weekend. Well, it’s not—and for good reason. While the cliffs at Maryland Heights are over 200 feet high, they are also quite loose and vegetated. Toproping here can be difficult, and the lead climbs are often scary, so most climbers choose to simply climb elsewhere. However, there are a few good routes to do here if you are adventurous or live in the immediate area. There are certainly many more possible routes beyond what is included in this guide; consult Mark Kochte’s Climb Maryland! for complete coverage."
