About Barrett's Cove:

A southwest facing cliff, about 250 ft high, overlooking Lake Megunticook. Good multi-pitch routes. A nice horizontal ledge (Broadway) about half way. Routes range from 5.3 R to 5.10a. Protection can be tricky (R-rated) on some routes, and runouts substantial. Some routes have bolts, and there are some bolted rap anchors, but trad is the general rule.
Nearest town or city: Camden
Directions: From the town of Camden follow Rt. 52 which is right in the middle of town.Go 2.7 miles. There is a parking on the right. Follow a trail up and left (west) from the parking pulloff. When you reach Charley's Crack wall, the trail splits. The trail on the right will take you to the right side of Barrett's and the trail on the left will take you to the left side of Barrett's. If you continue on the left hand trail up to the left end of Barrett's, you will come to a dry streambed. Follow this streambed up the gully and cut left to get to the Verticals.
