Acadia Trip

  • Bar Harbor Rd Bar Harbor, ME, 04609 United States (map)

We are back at Acadia for Memorial Day weekend 2016! There's lots of great toprope climbing at the spectacular sea cliffs (Otter Cliffs and Great Head) and trad climbing at the Precipice and South Bubble. There is also plenty of hiking, ocean, and lobster!

We have two group sites at the (conveniently located) Blackwoods Campground for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.

Cost for this trip is $26 per person for the weekend. In addition to camping, this will cover food for a cookout at the campsite on Saturday evening. Please note that Acadia National Park has a per-vehicle entrance fee of $25, valid for 1 week.

You are primarily responsible for your own climbing arrangements but we'll try to facilitate leaders and new rock program grad pairings to the extent we can. Generally a bunch of people will go toproping at Otter Cliffs each day. You will also need your own gear for climbing. (Usually enough people have ropes for toproping.)

To reserve a spot, email Catherine Wearing at and let her know whether you are a trad leader. After Catherine has confirmed availability of a spot, she will let you know how to make a payment for the trip fee.  (A payment is required to hold a spot.) 

Please note that all participants will be required to sign the AMC waiver.
