Comments: Hey All -

I lost my hat at the lower slabs today, it's Yellow with a Central Maine logo on the front, and a pine tree. It's at the base of Clingon. It has a lot of sentimental value, if you see it I'd love to get it back.

Comments: Climb with gear if you want to. If you want to plug pro to feel safe, do it. No-one's keeping score but you.

That being said the lower crack is dead easy and just fun.

Comments: The anchors are pretty far back and your rope goes over some nasty edges.

Comments: Definitely a cool place to climb though the trail is a little vague. The hike up alone is worth it for the cool / different views of the Potrero and Hidalgo.

Some of the routes are starting to have vegetation reclaim some of the holds, you might get a cactus tickling your face.

The chains at the top of a lot of the climbs are bleeding rust and very rusty.

Comments: This crag should be taken off the site. Its eroding, its unstable, and its prominence is attracting some vain FA wannabees, as shown by Silas's account.

Comments: The rock here is just terrible - soft, exfoliating and loose. It is barely balanced on itself, just waiting for you to come along and pull it down. It certainly can't hold a stopper, much less a cam, and even less so a bolt.

Climb if you must, but keep in mind the erosion factor if you pull down too much of the cliff.

Really though, the rock is terrible. It seems to be some sort of mica infested unconsolidated shale. You'd be better off heading up the road a bit to Camden, inland to western m... more >>

Comments: Hey Y'all. I've created a shell pond area in Maine for that awesome crag. If you have any info on the place please throw it up on the shell pond page, before it all gets lost to the obscurity of time. Thanks!

Comments: Route Tip - The bolts on the 3rd pitch are directly above the two bolt anchor at the top of the second pitch. Literally straight up. It's about 40' to the first bolt.


Also, the bolts look a little sketchy. There's rust weeping out of the glue.

Comments: Nuts are best for building the anchor at the top, There aren't any super great cam placements except for one way way back.

Comments: Climbed here in november, and fallen leaves made it hard to find the hikers trail. We cut right and scrambled along the old rusted and retired walking trail, with ancient fixed protection from the early 1900s. Got back to the top of the upper slab and rap'd out.
