Detailed Product Description
Washington D.C., PATC, 1990, 1st edition. 125 pp, topos, maps, b/w photos. Used softcover. Near Fine.

This guide is put out by PATC's Mountaineering Section identifying the many climbing and bouldering opportunities at Carderock, Washington's most accessible climbing area. The guide documents the exploratory -  and in recent years -  spirit of climbers and mountaineers who have used the rocks along the Potomac River for decades. It is a guide to some of the newer routes as well as a partial record of the people who first actively climbed the area and named many routes.

In the 1920's, PATC member Gus Gambs first introduced the sport of roped climbing to the region, and a new dimension of Carderock began to be explored. Many of the routes at Carderock received their names from PATC members.

The guide is a beautiful piece of work, including descriptions of the routes, difficulty, and height. Simple but effective line drawings show the rock faces. If you don't have time to bomb up to the Stonyman cliffs or the more challenging multi-pitch routes of Seneca Rocks in WV, a quick trip to the top-rope climbs in Carderock may satisfy your urge.
