Northwest Branch


Mini Guide #2: Northwest Branch

Hot off the heels of the Levitation guide, here’s a new guide to Northwest Branch!  Coming from Robin Close of Robin’s Bouldering Page, it’s bound to be good.  The first edition is a beta release (no pun intended), with a full guide coming out in a few weeks.  So if you run into any confusion with it, just leave a note in the comments.

Northwest Branch is near Silver Spring, just off of 29.  For full directions, check the first pages of the guide; it’s fool-proof!  If you’re looking to tick off the classics on your first trip, after stopping by the Tulip Boulder to warm up, check out the following boulders/problems:

  • Chaos Roof Boulder (easy slabs to double-digit roof climbing)
  • The Big Roof Boulder
  • And of course, perhaps the most classic problem at NWB, The Business

The videos below will give you a sneak peek of the climbing at Northwest Branch:
