Memorial Day Weekend at Acadia National Park

We are back at Acadia for Memorial Day weekend 2019! There's lots of great top-rope 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 other things to do like hiking, going to the beach, walking and biking on the carriage roads, lobster, and much more!

The cost for the weekend is $26. This includes the cost of the campsite, firewood and food for a cookout on Saturday evening. Participants should help out with the cookout if they can.  In addition you need to make your own arrangements for climbing, hiking and other activities. 

We will organized a day of climb at Otter cliff for Climbers who have taken the Boston AMC rock program class course  (or equivalent).  You are responsible for arranging your own climbing partners and bringing all of your own equipment to set up top rope (trad gear is required to set up some top rope routes).  

If you are not yet part of the AMC Boston Climbers community we would love to get to know you but realize that most people are not comfortable jumping on a rope with someone they just met so come with a partner, one of you must be able to lead, and you must bring all of your own equipment (harness, helmet, shoes, rope, and draws plus camping gear if staying overnight).

Some more information can be found here in the overview document. Please fill out the form below to register and get the payment PayPal link. Contact trip organizer, Sue Lin, at with any questions.

Please note that everyone will be required to sign the AMC liability waiver.

Registration closes at 12pm on Thursday May 23rd.
