Additional Information: White Rock Acres is rarely crowded, has solid rock, and is on the Appalachian Trail corridor. Definitely a top-rope or very cruiser traditional leader spot (cruiser = easy 5th class trad leading is abundant). The rock type Antietam Quartzite (similar to Pond Bank, Seneca , and some spots in the Gunks.)
The Main Wall is 60ft in height with a handful of different route opportunities (mix and match). Some of the Main Wall is almost vertical with most less than vertical and broken up by some ledges (these ledges = great gear placement opportunities for the rookie trad leader.)
Great spot to get away and practice anchors, rappelling, placing gear, etc. Never any crowds so it is nice to practice out of the way and not be bothered or bother others.
