Description:

Continue up the approach trail heading left up the stairs right next to the wall untill you come to a face split by many discontinuous cracks (Conneticut Cracks). Old Town is the spectacular corner to the right. (not the wide one) 2B anchor at the top. Very busy most summer days, try not to set up residence TRing.

One of best climbs in maine, three stars!

5 out of 5 stars What a spring in Maine!

Clean lead on clean rock during a surprising early spring.

4 out of 5 stars outstanding!

sucessful trad lead! excellent route. just did pitch 1. my fingers were too big to fit into some of the "finger cracks." great pro. starts off tricky, then maintain's a good creepy factor throughout. lots of small and med N's and cams for a safe climb.
