Each summer I travel to Acadia to refresh the mind and body. There is something about the ocean, the cool air, great hiking and climbing that puts it all together and re-energizes the body.

This past weekend after a long day on Mt Katahdin, Steve, Chris, Mark, Matt and I drove down east to Bar Harbor. We headed right out to the cliffs and sampled a few of the classic granite crack climbs on the Precipice. We kept our pace through two days and climbed on a variety of routes and mountain hikes. In the evenings we enjoyed the fine eateries in the seaside town of Bar Harbor.

This vacation combination of climbing on Katahdin and Acadia is a great way to replenish the mind and body. Thanks to the Cody team for joining MMG and leaving work and the mid summers heat behind for a weekend of fun and excitement.
