Every time I go to Acadia I take a lap on this route--surely one of the most spectacular short routes of its grade in New England (especially when the surf is heavy). A word of caution: as you traverse the top of the cliff toward the rappel anchor, the last 10 feet or so is a little spooky (and the bolts aren't all that easy to spot. Consider roping up for this (it's easy to set up a belay from a pod up and left). An un-belayed slip while traversing the final few feet would surely be fatal. Jul 18, 2011

if you clip your rappel line to the second bolt on your way down, when you pull your rope it won't go in the drink. Sep 5, 2011

Good beta on not dunking your rope, akline. Great route in a spectacular setting. Avoid getting sucked into the chalked holds in the corner, makes things more awkward than needed. Jan 22, 2019
