Shepherdstown Limestone - A Look Back

During this past winter (2010/11) I posted about the Limestone cliffs across the Potomac river from Shepherdstown, WV. ( CLICK HERE to see that post.) While recently digging through old photographs, I found a few from around 1996 that are of my cousin and I climbing on those cliffs. We had just begun rock climbing so we were pretty nervous. You'll see in the first photograph that we had a double rope toprope with two 11mm ropes. To most experienced climbers that is more than overkill and perfectly illustrates our anxiety. Nonetheless, we tackled the climbs and had a great time. See the Harpers Ferry Climbing Google map for the location of these cliffs. Enjoy
