The 45-degree wall is cliff-band bouldering located on the southeast side of The Beehive. Despite its name the 45-degree wall does not overhang 45 degrees. Its actual angle is probably more like 20 degrees. The climbing in this area tends to be crimpy and powerful. Until recently the routes on the 20-25ft tall section of the wall were drop-off problems. Two of the 3 pure lines in this section were taken to the top of the wall in the fall of 2009. The third (middle) of these lines is by far the hardest and is still, to my knowledge anyway, awaiting a first ascent. This line features powerful V7 crimping followed by a V8+ dyno at the 20foot mark. On the far right side of the wall there is a heinous crimp problem called "Skintimate" V9/10. (First Ascent by Aaron Schneider, May 2010) This short problem is undoubtedly one of Acadia's hardest, a true test piece.
