Satellite Wall at Mt. Molly


The crags are located on top of Mt. Molly. The area can be located from several directions, but the easiest is to follow directions to Devils Den. The cliffs range from 30-80 feet tall, and offer excellent views of Merrymeeting Lake. Mount Molly has four distinct sections of cliff, Right End, Satellite Wall, Central Wall, and the Left End.

Getting There 

You can walk to Mt. Molly from Devils Den in about 20-25 minutes. If you have 4WD drive past the parking lot for Devils Den and take a right at the T. Continue up over the hill and down the other side to a swamp. Go up the hill on the road to a grass pull off on the left with a private road, park here. Walk up the private road for 75 yards and then turn left at a cairn onto a logging road. Follow the logging road for 10 min. At set of cairns turn right into the woods on a climbers trail. Walk to the left of a dirty north facing slab and follow the trail to the top of the mountain about 5 minutes. The trail will bring you up to the Right End.

The climbing here is so fun, but based on the approach trail and overgrowth this area is hardly getting used...

Has anyone climbed here recently? Even last year? I live in Vermont most of the year but work at a camp in New Durham in the summer time and am hoping to have some time this year to check it out. I have climbed at the den before when the road was still open but never knew that this spot was here.

Any beta on getting there different than the description? Is this road also closed?

Anything would be helpful. Looking at maps online it looked like it would be fairly easy to get to from the Merrymeeting side.

Lou, it is very easy to find the Mt Molly access from North Shore Road on Merrymeeting Lake. There is a gate immediately off North Shore, but even if it is locked it is only a 10-15 minute walk to the parking spot.
