Baxter/ Katahdin rock routes

12:32 p.m. on September 3, 2002 (EDT)

I'm planning a trip to Mount Katahdin in Maine's Baxter State Park. We're a group of 3 with lead and follow abilities at 5.8.
Does anyone have suggestions and beta on 5.5-5.8 routes there. We're currently looking at the Chimney and the Armadillo. The New England Rock Climbing book has limited info. Can anyone supplement??

Acadia Mountain Guides / Alpenglow Adventure Sports is usually a good source of Maine climbing beta. Their Orono store is an easy stop on the way to Baxter, or give them a call. They also have some limited Katahdin info on their web site at
