Getting There 

From Bar Harbor or points north follow rout 102 south to Echo Lake. After passing visible portions of Echo Lake on the right, make a right into the Echo Lake entrance of Acadia National Park on the south end of the lake. Park in the parking lot that access the Echo Lake beech.

Walk back up the access road from the parking lot and make a right across from a red and white no parking sign. Follow climberÂ’s trail to cliffs. You will encounter the cliff at the Commander Salamander Wall. The chimney in the corner is StonecutterÂ’s Bible (5.7R).


Shady set of steep cliffs located to the south east of Echo Lake in Acadia National Park. The rock is uniformly vertical and the holds are sharp. Good climbing in between 5.10 and 5.12 may be found. Other easier climbs are worth doing, but may be wet. It takes a long time for this crag to dry due to persistent seeps and moss above the rock face.

Canada Cliff is protected by trees and is a cool place to climb during the summer, and relatively wind free during colder months, making it a good summer and fall climbing area.

In addition to roped climbs on the cliffs, bouldering can be found up hill from the Echo Lake parking lot.
