Description 

The Main Wall is a steep to overhanging, high quality schist cliff with mostly sport routes 5.10-5.12. Most of the routes do not go to the top of the cliff so top-roping would be difficult. Routes have 2 bolt rap anchors. A 60 meter rope will work on most raps, a 70 meter on all. Some routes can be climbed on rainy days.

Getting There 

Deer Hill Rd approach to Main Cliff:
Drive 30 minutes north from N Conway/Fryeburg toward Evans Notch on Rt 113 to Deer Hill Rd on the right (Summit Achievement sign at road head). Drive 3.8 miles on Deer Hill Rd to a small pull off on the left. Walk 50 yds to start of Shell Pond Trail. Follow Shell Pond trail for 25 minutes and look for a faint climbers trail on your right. (If you come to an ATV bridge over a stream you've walked a little too far.) Hike 10 steep minutes uphill to upper tier of Main Cliff.

Stone House Rd approach to Main Cliff:
Continue north on Rt 113 1.1 miles past Bald Face parking lot to Stone House Rd on right (0.9 miles south of Basin Pond road on left). Follow Stone House Rd a short distance and take a right at T intersection. Continue on main road until you reach a gate closure at and parking lot at 1.1 miles. Walk past gate toward Stone House. Don't take first Shell Pond Trail on right but continue on road past White Cairn Trail and Stone House Trail on your left to a LARGE field/landing strip on the right side of road near the Stone House. Walk the road in the middle of the field (avoiding the Stone House and being low key) for another beautiful half mile (Main Wall will come into sight high on left ridge) until you cross an ATV bridge on Shell Pond Trail. Go right after crossing bridge another few minutes to the faint Main Wall climbers trail on you left. A steep 10 minutes uphill brings you to the upper tier.

The lower tier looks to have new route potential.

Science Project 5.11b 6c 23 VIII- 23 E3 5c  ME : Shell Pond : High Meadow Wall
Fun well protected climbing on clean steep rock. Moderate start with 1st bolt at about 15', crux at 8th bolt (a little swing if you blow it). Cool quartz crystals (which make good holds thank you) nearing the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in ME
