Steep face moves to a 10ft finger to thin hand crack, face holds lead to top.
Far left side of the wonder wall (facing the ocean)
There is no pro after the crack. Nuts and small cams with protect before that.
Fixed anchor on top.
Past the crux and having a ton of fun!

true there is no gear after the crack...but the climbing eases off to 5.8. there is some good gear placing beta that makes the climbing much easier.

Spent two days climbing in Acadia on my vacation and this was by far the best climb here. We just TR'd lines at Otter, but it was fun and scenic and this route was the cherry on top. Great movement, just wish it was twice as long!

I snaked a nut in the wall after the crux half way to the top, in a right facing crack to the right of a block, but it was more to be an ass to my second... mwa ha ha

There is a bomber stopper placement after the crack and more gear if you look for it. Although it is a little run out at the start on moderate ground, the protection on this route is excellent as is the climbing. With some creativity, the protection rating is closer to "G".
