Description 

This is were all the magic happens. At the top of lower slab/ bottom of Upper slab is a nice ledge to start your climbs (2 pitch trad). A great place for budding trad climbers to get good work in.

When you finish the climbs here, follow a 4th class scramble up to top of cliff, then follow the hikers trail down and to the left side of the cliff. At about the tree line, be sure to keep an eye out for the faint hiker trail on the left that gets you back to the Upper Slab. If not, it means a bit more hiking around in those crampy shoes.


Getting There 

continue past Lower Slab up trail to an obvious ledge.

Charlie near to topping out on the second pitch

Moraviana 5.7 5a 15 V+ MVS 4b  ME : Acadia National Park : ... : Upper Slab and Upper Wall
A very moderate two pitch climb, with the crux being towards the top of the last pitch. Start to the right up the upper slab, and quickly enter a left facing corner. Vegetation in the crack makes getting protection tricky. Power past this to a few easy moves and reach old rusted bolts to set up a belay. The second pitch begins with a long scramble up fourth class terrain before you reach a nice vertical section, with some fun moves. It's a pretty easy climb, and protection shouldn't be a problem...[more]   Browse More Classics in ME

Climbed here in november, and fallen leaves made it hard to find the hikers trail. We cut right and scrambled along the old rusted and retired walking trail, with ancient fixed protection from the early 1900s. Got back to the top of the upper slab and rap'd out.
