Description

This one area is for all the various boulders around Acadia.

People have been scrambling on the rocks here for ages, from the natives to the Europeans for the last few hundred years. Many casual climbers and tourists enjoy the occasional random line on the stretch between Otter Cliffs and Sand Beach.

This spot is to catch all the classics, and all the chaff. Enjoy what the park has to offer, but remember as you top out that someone has probably climbed it before. So watch the tide come in and out, contemplate the impermanence of things, and enjoy this beautiful spot on the coast.
