Description

South face of Mt. Stanton. All day sun lit. Secluded. high quality granite.

Getting There

Off of 302 across the Saco River from Attitash Ski area. Turn onto Covered Bridge Lane and park at hiking Mt. Stanton parking lot. head west through woods a short distance.

Updated Descriptions, R Hall, 2017:
1) Stanton Trail approach (per comment by A Winters] Allow ~20-30 minutes for the approach. Park at Mt. Stanton trailhead, walk ~150 yards from the trailhead, past the right-hand curve then take a left off the main trail onto the easy to miss orange-blazed trail. Follow the trail for about a half mile until you are "under" the cliff, then start your bushwhack uphill. The forest is wide and open and easy to navigate. When you reach the talus under the cliff, follow the cairns to the base. Best approach if you plan to hike off.

Jay Morse (2017) adds: " in the summer when the leaves are thick you will not be able to see the cliff. After about a half-mile on the faintly orange-blazed trail you will be taking the first, fairly obvious obvious herd path on the right side. Follow the cairns up the talus field and you will end up very close to Endeavor. "

2) Rick's Road Approach (NOTE- Rick's road is now in MUCH better shape than it was a few yrs ago) Per comment by 'BALDY', with R Hall updates: 4/10 of a mile past the Y intersection you will see "Ricks Road, on the left", a dirt road that follows the bank of the Saco. Follow this road 0.55 miles until you see an old logging road w/ a small pullout on the right. [see photo, this is the 2nd logging rd you'll come to] You are directly below the cliff. Park, and follow the logging road, bear right at 1st branch and then generally follow the path until you find the cairns that will lead you up through the talus to the base of the cliff. 10-15 mins for the hike in this way. If you are rapping off, this is probably the best approach.
