This is one memorable pitch. A must do for anyone looking to climb 5.10 in Acadia. Best to do at low tide, otherwise the start will be tricky. With the crashing waves beneath you, the thoughtful climbing, and decent protection, this should be on everyone's ticklist.

5 out of 5 stars Awesome!

This route will keep you thinking. But belaying your second is actually the crux. The combination of wind and waves and an overhung start make seeing or hearing your second impossible. Just keep them tight.
