Description

Sunset Hill is a small but densely packed bouldering area located just above the Lucerne Inn amid a development of log cabins. There are a lot of features here that are not common in other Bangor bouldering areas: cracks, roofs, etc.. What makes Sunset really though is that it has all the best qualities of a good bouldering spot: no approach, easy to navigate, a large concentration of problems, a lot of FA potential, highballs, and a variety of climbing styles. Much of the bouldering is actually done on a small, broken cliff band that ranges in height from 14 to 25 feet. There are some dangerous highballs here. It's worth bringing a lot of crash pads.

Getting There

From Brewer: Take 395 to exit 6A (Rte 1A East). Follow 1A 8.6 miles until you see the Lucerne Inn. Take a left onto Sunset Rd. Stay left at T (Orpine). Stay on Orpine until it intersects an old camp at it's end.

Parking is located at the right on the old camp road. You'll see the boulders and cliff band through the trees.

From Ellsworth: Take Rte 1A West for 12.8 miles (measuring from the intersection of Rte 1A and 179.) At the Lucerne Inn take a right onto Sunset Road. Follow the same directions as above.
