Join PATC-MS for a day of climbing at Annapolis Rock. Annapolis Rock is a quartzite crag in South Mountain State Park. It is known for its horizontal fractures which make for a variety of easy, moderate, and difficult face and roof routes. If the weather looks sketchy, we will go to Sugarloaf instead. 

This event will be limited to PATC-MS members and capped at 10 climbers.

There is a two mile hike in to Annapolis Rock. Plan to bring at least a gallon of water per person and snacks for the day.

Climbers should bring their own personal gear (harness, helmet, shoes, chalk bag, and belay device) and a top-rope set-up if they have one. The club will provide additional top-rope set-ups as needed.

Besides top roping, we will also be doing some trad climbing. The club will meet at 8 a.m. the Appalachian Trailhead Parking on Route 40, just outside of Myersville, Maryland. However, parking is quite limited at the crag. In order to not take up all the spaces, please consider meeting at the Julius West Middle School parking lot on the way in and driving in with another club member. Who knows, you might make a new friend!
