The Main Wall is the obvious, center-piece of Ten degree. It is roughly 350 feet at the highest point with several large dihedral systems blanketing the face. Randy Baker reports that there are several classic, multi-pitch routes here. The rock is clean granite with a number of cracks and featured, steep faces. The Main Wall is sub-divided into four sections. Left to right the sections are: Bemis Area, Central Wall, Wavy Wall, and the Friction Slabs.

Getting There 

Follow the approach trail right at the fork. Once you pass the "Bemis" arete the Main Wall will be obvious.

Entrance Crack 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Maine : Ten Degree Wall : ... : Central Wall
Climb the striking hand/fist crack under a dihedral to reach the belay ledge. There are bolts for anchor/rap at the belay. The crux is the finish, moving under the bulky dihedral with small under-clings and lay-backs, using friction on the smooth face to gain sloppers at the lip of the ledge. A really fun climb bottom to top! Protects very well....[more]   Browse More Classics in Maine
