Acadia National Park is well known among rock climbers for its spectacular seaside cliffs of pristine granite. From Otter Cliffs to the South Wall on Mt. Champlain and the South Bubble overlooking Jordan Pond -- Acadia boasts climbing terrain for all levels of expertise. A comprehensive guidebook to rock climbing in Acadia was published in 2002 and is available in many local shops in Bar Harbor including Cadillac Mountain Sports on Cottage Street and Sherman's Bookstore on Main Street. Two climbing schools are located in Bar Harbor (see the Maps, etc section for Resources) and provide half day and full day courses for everyone from first timers to advanced climbers. Families will enjoy a half day course.
