Canada Cliff Rock Climbing
From Bar Harbor or points north follow rout 102 south to Echo Lake. After passing visible portions of Echo Lake on the right, make a right into the Echo Lake entrance of Acadia National Park on the south end of the lake. Park in the parking lot that access the Echo Lake beech.
Walk back up the access road from the parking lot and make a right across from a red and white no parking sign. Follow climbers trail to cliffs. You will encounter the cliff at the Commander Salamander Wall. The chimney in the corner is Stonecutters Bible (5.7R).
Shady set of steep cliffs located to the south east of Echo Lake in Acadia National Park. The rock is uniformly vertical and the holds are sharp. Good climbing in between 5.10 and 5.12 may be found. Other easier climbs are worth doing, but may be wet. It takes a long time for this crag to dry due to persistent seeps and moss above the rock face.
Canada Cliff is protected by trees and is a cool place to climb during the summer, and relatively wind free during colder months, making it a good summer and fall climbing area.
In addition to roped climbs on the cliffs, bouldering can be found up hill from the Echo Lake parking lot.

An illuminate project. Stand start matched at the obvious incut crimp, making a move up and left to a terrible pinch/crimp. From this position, dyno straight up to finish on the same top-out as main boulder right project. Super tough but fun once you do it the first time! You can also dyno from the starting incut crimp and the grade is the same. The first 'recorded ascent' as a dyno was put up by Tom O'Maley in early 2015, though this a...[more] Browse More Classics in ME

Popped Hanger from Roundup (Acadia NP, Canada Cliffs)
Hey All! Just wanted to pop this out on MP because it seems relevant–
Took a ride yesterday on the bolted route that is called "Roundup" in the guide (Listed as a 5.11a, my crew calls it "Footsi Two-Shoes" for it's fun footwork).
I fell on the top bolt of the route and it blew! I had noticed some small rust spots on it and the other hangers on the line, but they appeared structural enough to whip on... Boy was I wrong!
I'm feeling pretty lucky to be typing this right now; landed a few feet above ledge. Be careful about these shitty Climb-X hangers, and clip with caution!
