Upper Slab and Upper Wall Rock Climbing

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.
continue past Lower Slab up trail to an obvious ledge.

Pass a small bulge, backing up a questionable fixed pin. Keep right and head for the fist-sized crack above, using it to pull over the crux bulge near the top (5...[more] Browse More Classics in ME

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.
