This was my first time in Maine. The state conjures up childhood memories of a wooden jigsaw puzzle of the United States that I used to play with. I remember plunking the Maine piece into the puzzle and thinking "Wow! Maine is so far away. I wonder what it's like..."

I've heard New England climbers gush about Shagg's steep, impeccable granite for years but never thought I would have a chance to visit. The 2.5 hour drive from the coast offered us a chance to see the heart of Maine. Since there are no large westbound highways we happily took small back roads across the state, which brought us through some cute towns, and gorgeous countryside.
