This is a tucked away bouldering wall that is a 5-10 minute walk up the Gorham Mountain Trail in Acadia National Park. The main attraction is a granite wall around 20-25 feet high and pushing 45 feet wide. There are some other small bits of rock around this worth climbing, but of course be mindful to not trample plants as they are off trail.
The wall itself is south facing, so even on sunny winter days this can be a good location for an afternoon of climbing.

Getting There 

Park in the Gorham Mountain Trail car park (after Thunder Hole) off the Park Loop Road. Head up the Gorham Mountain Trail until you start seeing exposed granite slabs on the left. There may also be some little logs and rocks to keep hikers on the correct trail. Step over these and head up the granite slabs. You will enter back into the trees and come to a small wall (about 10 feet tall). Skirt left around it and and the main wall will be right there.

Start from one end, finish at the other. Stay around the middle height wise. I usually start from the left end to get the hard stuff out of the way before I am too pumped....[more]   Browse More Classics in Maine
