Crag features

The Harpers Ferry region includes cliffs in all 3 states MD, WV, and VA. The climbing ranges from multi-pitch trad, sport and top-roping areas to tons of excellent bouldering. Maryland Heights stands 200 feet tall and is the tallest cliff in central Maryland. Most of the rock in the region is a hard quartzite providing good crack systems and positive edges on the faces.
