Comments: You can rappel off this route with one 70M rope. From the top of the last pitch scramble up 30 feet into the woods, go 150 feet climbers left above an obvious tree with rappel tat. Scramble down and 5 or six rappels will bring you to the ground.

Comments: I thought the crux was transitioning from the layback crack to the chimney on P3. Certainly one of the best routes of that length and grade in the northeast.

Comments: I thought the upper 5.10 crack was similar in style and grade to 'On the Loose'. That is to say: Friggin' sweet.

Comments: Tony Goodwin mentioned that he had climbed it back in the day and thought it was "pretty hard for a 5.7". It gets a 5.8+ now and is still pretty stiff.

Comments: The pin is gone. Plenty of other protection possibilities.

Comments: awesome route. left my climbing shoes in the car by accident, lead the first pitch and a half in my sneakers. rangers didnt check our bags for helmets or a four inch piece despite what we were told. that being said, a helmet and a four inch piece are recommended regardless.

Comments: tricams are pretty helpful for protecting the last 20 feet on the arete. just pop 'em in the jugs. jugs doubling as protection, god i love acadia.

Comments: Felt like the first pitch was 5.9+, skipped the second pitch, third pitch felt like 5.10b, so the crux pitch must be the second. Makes more sense to do wheaties instead of the second pitch anyways.

Comments: spectacular jug hauling on the first pitch followed by classic delicate face climbing on the second. one of the best routes at clifton. possible to break right at the first belay into witch wonder.

Comments: really dislike this route. awkward mantle after awkward mantle. that being said, it is one of the few well protected bolt lines at the grade at clifton.

Comments: Pretty uneventful climbing up until the roof, then pure glory. I don't know about 5.9+, no way near as hard as wheaties.
