Description

Located in Camden Hills State Park directly above the Guide Wall, The Spot is currently the best option for bouldering in the Camden Hills. A good concentration of large boulders, often tumbled on one another, offer a variety of fun and challenging problems with generally good landings. You'll want to bring at least a couple pads as some of the best lines can be in the 16-20' range, especially at the Hidden Wall sector. The majority of the obvious lines have been climbed at this point, but some of the most impressive lines and faces remain unclimbed, especially at the Hidden Wall sector. The rock type is gniess, a really grippy, often sharp rock that is typical of the park.

Getting There

Head up the carriage rd trail off rt 52 in Camden. Stay left at trail fork, cross two small wooden bridges, shortly after the second bridge take a left at a small cairn. This is the trail to the Guide Wall, which you will walk past as you keep criss-crossing your way up a steep gully. Take a small log bridge on the left, which leads you out of the gully up a steep goat path, that leads you directly to The Spot in a short distance, arriving at the Geo Cache boulder. From there, the boulders go in a loose line of clusters for a couple hundred feet at roughly the same elevation. At the far end of the line is a lengthy faced boulder thats only about 8' tall and seemingly the last boulder in the area. But, about 150 yds away is the Hidden Wall, a most impressive specimen of a boulder/mini-cliff. To get there keep following the feint trail that keeps traversing the hillside away from "The Spot"area. Cross over a few rocky stream beds and the trail drops into a short, steep gully that puts you at the base of the Hidden Wall boulder, again, about 150 yds from the main "Spot" area. The Hidden Wall is close to 20' high in spots, so extra pads and spotters are good to have! Enjoy!
