Description

Just right of Tilman's Arete along the shore of Chapel Pond.

___UPDATE 2020___ There are bolts and chains at the top.

___UPDATE May 2014___ Due to large rack fall the tree previously used for an anchor has been severely damaged. The next closest tree capable of supporting rappelling is several feet back from the edge of the cliff. Knot the rope ends and stay left at the bottom of the wall/corner to ensure your rope reaches the base.

Rappel is on the left/main wall into a small corner/gully, NOT over the water on the unclimbed outer wall. 60m is sufficient.

Getting There

The approach starts at the Giant Trailhead parking, same as for The Aquarium.  A trail system goes through the woods and follows closely along the base of the mountain, trending left.  The beach is now flooded as are the woods between this trail and Chapel Pond because of beaver activity.

Follow Chapel Pond's shoreline to Tilman's Arete, continue past Tilman's along the shore for about 1 minute.
