Description 

This Attractive 250 foot cliff, with an overall angle of about 70 degrees, provides the most accessible climbing in the Camden area, and it quite warm due to its southeast exposure. HOwever, it dries slowly, and the right side remains damp for the majority of the summer.

Barretts is primarily a traditional area, with occasional runouts serving to spice up otherwise moderate climbs. Make sure you bring your small protection.

The majority of the climbs at barretts are two pitches in length, and require face climbing skills. Two double rope rappels will get you down the cliff, you can also walk off the descent gully, by going left at the top of the cliff.


Getting There 

Park along ROute 52 just south of the road to the town beach at Barrett's cove on lake megunticook. Hike in along the climbers path, which starts near the high end of the paved pulloff. The hike up takes about 3-5 minutes.

What is the hard one to the left of Charlie's Crack?

Lost a rigid stem 3.5 non-colored friend halfway up Joe's route this winter. Backed off a mixed ascent due to weather. The clip in point is yellow/red cord and the Yosemite tie-off is orange spectra. If you find it I would love to have it back!
