Guide's Wall has short (30-60'), mostly moderate routes on sometimes fragile schist. It is southeast facing and shaded by trees, so it's often best in the fall after the leaves are down. It dries slowly. Because it is not yet included in the guidebook, it gets little traffic. All routes have bolted belay/rappel anchors.

Getting There 

Park at the Carriage Trail trailhead on Route 52, about a mile west of Camden. Follow the trail (an old road); take the left fork in about half a mile, where the right fork heads up Mount Battie. The trail will cross two small streams on wooden bridges, and then bend sharply right; a cairn just after the bend marks the climbers' trail on the left. Follow the climbers' trail up and left to the start of the left wall of a wide gully; this is the Guide's Wall. The total approach is about a mile of mostly flat walking and takes about 20 minutes.

The Million Muppet March 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Maine : Camden Hills : 09. Guide's Wall
Start up a thin vertical crack system (optional gear placements), then climb straight up through an overhanging bulge on big holds. Continue up a slab (more optional gear placements) to an anchor set in the overhang at the top of the cliff. Probably the best route on the Guide's Wall....[more]   Browse More Classics in Maine
