Comments: A lot of these area descriptions blow. "TBC?" Lets get this updated, this is a nice area, it would be nice if MP could be a little more helpful.

Comments: Checked this place out today after hearing good things about it @ IME. It's great, a fun change of pace in the North Conway area, beautiful spot, really casual. Definitely hit it up. - Oh, and if you want to help chip in the cairns need a little work. The trail up is along the road bordering the river, and the most obvious trail. Very short approach.

Comments: This last winter was a harsh one, most of the major formations near the entrance to the park lost rock, including the bolted face. Be extra wary of potentially pulling blocks out and rock instability, the park is going through a period of extra loose erosion / rock fall.

Comments: Yeah, there are rap stations on the cliff for rappelling with a 60 meter, the upper one is about 15' climber's right of the top out of the whole climb.

Comments: Hey, this is the rap station for the top of the cliff, not the top out for Charlotte's crack. The 2nd pitch of the crack goes up the wide crack and ends at a couple of trees, about 15' climber's left of this rap station.

Comments: Hey All -

I lost my hat at the lower slabs today, it's Yellow with a Central Maine logo on the front, and a pine tree. It's at the base of Clingon. It has a lot of sentimental value, if you see it I'd love to get it back.

Comments: Climb with gear if you want to. If you want to plug pro to feel safe, do it. No-one's keeping score but you.

That being said the lower crack is dead easy and just fun.

Comments: Definitely a cool place to climb though the trail is a little vague. The hike up alone is worth it for the cool / different views of the Potrero and Hidalgo.

Some of the routes are starting to have vegetation reclaim some of the holds, you might get a cactus tickling your face.

The chains at the top of a lot of the climbs are bleeding rust and very rusty.

Comments: This crag should be taken off the site. It's eroding, it's unstable, and its prominence is attracting some vain FA wannabees, as shown by Silas's account.

Comments: The rock here is just terrible - soft, exfoliating and loose. It is barely balanced on itself, just waiting for you to come along and pull it down. It certainly can't hold a stopper, much less a cam, and even less so a bolt.

Climb if you must, but keep in mind the erosion factor if you pull down too much of the cliff.

Really though, the rock is terrible. It seems to be some sort of mica infested unconsolidated shale. You'd be better off heading up the road a bit to Camden, inland to western m... more >>

Comments: Hey Y'all. I've created a shell pond area in Maine for that awesome crag. If you have any info on the place please throw it up on the shell pond page, before it all gets lost to the obscurity of time. Thanks!
