DescriptionGo to the Beech Cliff parking lot of Acadia National Park. In recent years, boulder development has seen a major boom in Acadia National Park! This area is no exception, as local crusher, Jonathan Hogue, of Evolv Sports, has been busy scrubbing and cleaning rocks with permission from the National Park Service in many areas including: Canada Cliffs, The Precipice, and Beech Cliff. (He's also been busy replacing bolts, so thank him if you see him out climbing and cleaning).
This area gets socked in with regards to wet-rock, thus it takes a great deal of time to dry out. It shouldn't have rained for several days before attempting to climb here, as all the rocks tend to be saturated long-term (Aside from the Parking Lot Boulder).
Please respect the natural habitat and locals-"pack in/pack out."
Until now, this was a local boulderers best kept secret and we certainly don't want thousands of climbers trampling through the area all the time.
Please respect the National Park lands, which includes removing tick marks and picking up discarded tape, etc.
Here is a short video edit featuring climbs I've repeated and established in Acadia National Park:
Thanks all, stay safe out there!
Getting ThereBeech Cliff parking lot of Acadia National Park. To get to the Beech Mountain parking area, just south of Somesville, turn west on the well-marked Pretty Marsh Road, then turn left (south) on Beech Hill Road and follow it for roughly four miles until it ends at the fairly large parking area within Acadia National Park. The Beech Mountain parking area has trailheads going in all directions so make sure that you are on the trail you intend to be on!
You'll want to head towards the back of the parking lot, which is the Northwest Corner towards the Canada Cliffs Trail-Head where you'll stay right where it splits after a half-mile or so.
