Description 

The Parking Lot Buttress is sunny but gets shade early. When the South wall is still in the sun, one can find a shady breeze here. This area sees much less traffic but deserves much more attention. The crack climbing here is unique to the area, and though grungy in places, the rock quality is very high.

Getting There 

Directly above the parking lot for the Precipice Trail. 10 minute approach. Follow the Precipice Trail into the talus field. When you are pretty close the cliff the trail takes a hard right where the old path (slightly discernible) turns left once you pop back into the trees you are beneath the climbs

Legion of Decency 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  Maine : Acadia National Park : Parking Lot Buttress
Legion of Decency is a magnificent, instant mega classic, and an atypical crack climb of Acadia. Parts of this route may have been top roped by earlier explorers after climbing one of the nearby obscure, un-loved, burly, kickass climbs of the Parking Lot Buttress. The route has never seen a lead climber until recently, which is mind boggling because the route is rather jaw dropping when viewed from the ground. Though having a newly cleaned splitter crack system to send off on certainly contribut...[more]   Browse More Classics in Maine
