Description 

This is the southernmost of the Porcupine Islands with an imposing south face. I've not been close enough to observe the landing area, but there appeared to be an overhang to start the routes in the middle that could lead to nicer falls.

By boat. Closest harbor with easy access is Bar Harbor.

Climbing Season

For the Acadia National Park area.
