Northwest Branch is the largest developed bouldering area between Baltimore and Washington, DC., and may be the most convenient as well. The boulders are located just off Route 29 in Silver Spring, with a Trader Joe's, Starbucks, and California Tortilla just up the hill. With close to 100 established problems, and the main concentration of boulders less than a five minute walk from the parking lot, it's easy enough for anyone to put together a decent circuit. Northwest Branch is characterized by good (though sometimes sharp) incut holds and lots of solid crystals for feet, with relatively flat landings making a single crash pad usually sufficient even for a solo boulderer.
