Acadia August 26 - 27
« on: August 11, 2012, 12:01:49 AM »

I'm going to be visiting Acadia for the first time with my mom and really want to get some climbing in while I'm there. I'm looking for a partner for one of the three dates above if anyone is available to take me out! I can lead trad up to around 5.5/5.6 and sport around 5.11a. I'm coming from Australia so I'm trying to bring minimal gear, but I plan on buying a set of cams while in the states that we can use! Please let me know if anyone wants to get out for a day climb! Thanks! - Kim

I will be in Acadia at Blackwoods campground on 8/22-8/26

You mention Acadia August 26 - 27 but then "one of the three dates above". If one of the three dates is 8/25, maybe we can get together. Else, possibly 8/26 (AM only) at Otter Cliffs since I'm driving back to Connecticut on the 26th.

I don't know why, but this statement makes me laugh.

If it's overhanging, I'm probably off-route.

we've been looking for info on that but that is the most "in depth" reporting we can find. if that is the route we think it is, recollections of pacifica, it is a nasty place to fall.
