Product Description

This is the guide to own if you are going to climb in the Great Falls area. It covers crags on the Virginia and Maryland side, over 30 in all, and discusses more than 300 routes ranging from 5.0 to 5.13.

The book has good photos that allow one to locate individual routes.

There are sections on regulations, ethics, safety, geology, and history as well.

One of the best things about the guide is its small size; it is light and easy to carry in a side pocket of a pack, from which it is easily retrieved without needing to take the pack off.

The book retails for about $13.

Voted 5/5

I have found this so valuable for the amount of information packed into such a small book. The photographs are very helpful in locating the different routes. I think directions to the crags themselves are sometimes somewhat lacking, but the crags are fairly concentrated, especially on the Virginia side, and the pictures will help one get his bearing.
