Beautiful route, I spent a week in Acadia at the end of May and climbed this route once a day as a warm-up (or down). It is a great classic that shouldn't be missed. I would also like to submit the first record for a speed ascent of the climb at 18:58 from the time I (the leader) left the ground until both of us were off rappel at the bottom ;).
P.S. This route can be climbed easily with a 70m (likely a rope stretcher if using a 60) in one pitch with limited rope drag.

|There is a nice looking crack to the right of the start of the 3rd pitch. Does anyone know what this is? It seems not far enough right for vacation cracks, but when I looked for vacation cracks from the description in the guidebook I wasn't sure I saw that either.|

|This is full-value for the grade. And while I'm sure it can all be run together in one really long pitch, the three pitches break up easy on nice ledges and make it easy for climbers to see each other and communicate. The upper two pitches, in particular, are wonderful---steep, great moves, good gear (and perhaps verging on 5.7). On P.3, face moves out left and then a step back right make reaching the first gear easier. What a little gem. The rap anchor is up and left once you top out. Two raps to the ground.|

|Such a great route! Just climbing it this weekend with my buddy, we are both fairly new to trad so this was a great one to do, with an awesome view as well!|

|Fun route, great rock. I linked the first two pitches with a 70m rope (although you could also use a 60m rope) being as the first pitch was mostly easy fifth class climbing. Breaking this route into three pitches seems a little excessive and unnecessary.|
