That's a shame that Climb Maryland is no longer in print. It's a great book. I'd call Earth Treks since they may still have it in stock (I can swear I remember seeing copies of it at Earth Treks Timonium last week) as well as the REI in Timonium as well.
Also here is a link to Indy's (author of Climb Maryland) online guide (the book definitely has a lot more though) http://indy-adventures.net/climbing/gui ... garloafMtn

I was at REI in Timonium today and they had 4 copies or so of Climb Maryland there.

And man, I wish someone would have told me the Climb Maryland! guide was out of print! I thought my publisher still had around 1000 copies left. (granted, it's not being carried on Amazon at the choice of my pub, but you can still find it at REI and Earth Treks).
That said, I *am* trying to do a big update to the online guide (it may or may not get to 2nd Ed form, depending on Life and Whatnot - and no, diving isn't interfering with it ). Any bouldering information you may have gleaned over the years I'd love to hear about.

I checked out the bouldering at Morgan Run (very near my home) and it doesn't look anyone has climbed there for a couple years. I'm going to try to re-establish that area this summer. I'd be happy to give you any information (despite how limited it may be) that I can.

I've visited the main wall at Morgan Run a couple times last year, but never got out to poke around the bouldering (I'm not that much of a boulderer, but I totally recognize it as a legit climbing style, unlike some of my rope-climbing partners). I'd be totally down with joining you sometimes up there. But for now, heading out to Bloede Dam for a bit of roped climbing.
