Description 

This is were all the magic happens. At the top of lower slab/ bottom of Upper slab is a nice ledge to start your climbs (2 pitch trad). A great place for budding trad climbers to get good work in.

When you finish the climbs here, follow a 4th class scramble up to top of cliff, then follow the hikers trail down and to the left side of the cliff. At about the tree line, be sure to keep an eye out for the faint hiker trail on the left that gets you back to the Upper Slab. If not, it means a bit more hiking around in those crampy shoes.

Getting There 

continue past Lower Slab up trail to an obvious ledge.

Featured Route For Upper Slab and Upper Wall

Moraviana 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  ME : Acadia National Park : ... : Upper Slab and Upper Wall
A very moderate two pitch climb, with the crux being towards the top of the last pitch. Moraviana starts to the right up the upper slab, and quickly enters a left facing corner. There's some vegetation in the crack which makes getting protection tricky. Easy moves past the corner lead to old rusted bolts for a belay. The second pitch begins with a long scramble up fourth class terrain before you reach a nice vertical section, with some fun moves. It's an easy climb, and easy to protect.

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.
