Description 

Thanks to generous donations in the not so distant past, Bates was able to secure its fair share of Maine granite. After it was forcefully exhumed from its home in the ground, it was reconstructed to form beautiful aretes and less impressive window sills. Bates also appears to have only recently discovered that brick is just one of many building materials. Thus, brick is the dominant rock type in this location.

Getting There 

From Lewiston, follow the trail of Vineyard Vines pastel shorts and Canada Goose jackets towards a strange outcropping of brick buildings and green grass.

Rock Climbing Photo: With My Woes

With My Woes V4 6B  Maine : Lewiston-Auburn Buildering : ... : Hedge Hall
Starting from the corner/the finish of "Running Through the Six," "With My Woes" continues towards climbers right. Make a delicate move from the corner to the next sill using a mono pocket (tssssssaah) at head hight. The majority of the route offers a great view into the lecture of the day in Hedge 104. When you reach the bike rack, make a move similar to the start with more spice and less mono pocket....[more]   Browse More Classics in Maine
