Description 

This is a tucked away bouldering wall that is a 5-10 minute walk up the Gorham Mountain Trail in Acadia National Park. The main attraction is a granite wall around 20-25 feet high and pushing 45 feet wide. There are some other small bits of rock around this worth climbing, but of course be mindful to not trample plants as they are off trail.
The wall itself is south facing, so even on sunny winter days this can be a good location for an afternoon of climbing.

Getting There 

Park in the Gorham Mountain Trail car park (after Thunder Hole) off the Park Loop Road. Head up the Gorham Mountain Trail until you start seeing exposed granite slabs on the left. There may also be some little logs and rocks to keep hikers on the correct trail. Step over these and head up the granite slabs. You will enter back into the trees and come to a small wall (about 10 feet tall). Skirt left around it and and the main wall will be right there.

Featured Route For Gorham Mountain Bouldering

The Butterfield Line V0 4  ME : Acadia National Park : Gorham Mountain Bouldering
This is the vertical line near the left end of the wall that follows a thin crack and a series of sloping holds. Some of the holds can be a little wet, which can be an unpleasant surprise as you approach the top. Pretty Exciting towards the top of it!For what it is worth, my rating here is mostly a shot in the dark... It has been a while since I climbed this last. I will update after my next visit to the problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in ME
