Otter Cliffs Climbing Routes Closed
Contact: Stuart West, 207-288-8772
The climbing routes of Otter Cliffs previously known as The Black Crack, Riptide, and Razor Crack (a.k.a. Razor Flake) were closed on Thursday, July 17, until further notice. Over the evening of Tuesday, July 15, a rockfall occurred in the Otter Cliffs area. At that time, several very large boulders broke free from the cliff face, but several more still attached boulders remain unstable on the cliff face above what were once these climbing routes.
The National Park Service at Acadia National Park will continue to monitor the cliff conditions and will re-open the closed section of the Otter Cliffs area as soon as the park climbing staff assesses the integrity of the remaining rock and removes loose debris from the cliff face. Please contact Acadia with any questions about this closure by calling 207-288-3338 and pressing “0.”
