Acadia Climbing

After facilitating a Trainer's course on Donnell Pond we had the opportunity to explore some of what Acadia National Park has to offer.  The park boasts amazing coastal cliffs and sandy beaches, as well as big dome-shaped mountains, freshwater lakes and crystal clear streams.  On our first day off, the park was shrouded in fog as we made our way to the Precipice climbing area on the eastern side of the park.  As we ascended the central wall's, Story of O, the sun broke through the clouds to expose beautiful views of the ocean in the distance.  Our second day was spent climbing at Otter Cliffs scaling the sea-worn rock along the coast.  Both locations offered very distinct experiences within miles of each other.  Acadia is one of America's most amazing treasures and we hope to return and explore it further.

Happy Trails, 

Topher and Alexis
