Annapolis Rocks Top-Roping Trip (rescheduled)

  • Sunday, June 20, 2021
  • 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
  • Annapolis Rocks


Registration is closed

Join PATC-MS for our first outdoor event of 2021 with 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. 

This event will be limited to PATC-MS members and capped at 14 climbers.

There is a two mile hike in to Annapolis Rock. Plan to bring water 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, there will be a clinic for trad climbers on setting pro and building a belay station in the kind horizontal cracks that you find at the Gunks. The cracks are right off the ground, making it a great place to practice and learn. Bring some of your favorite pieces.  

The club will meet at 8 a.m. the Appalachian Trailhead Parking on Route 40, just outside of Myersville, Maryland.
