Pamola & Chimney Peaks, Mt Katahdin

Pamola Peak guards the eastern end of the Great Basin and is a popular peak because of its proximity to the Roaring Brook trailhead. It is also the usual starting point for a traverse of the Knife Edge.

Chimney Peak is the small sharp peak adjacent to Pamola, separated by a narrow gap or "chimney". The chimney provides the most technically challenging section of a hike along the Knife Edge, but in good weather requires no special skill beyond an ability not to think about falling.

Routes to Pamola include:
Helon Taylor Trail and the Knife Edge which together take you from Roaring Brook to South and Baxter peaks.

Dudley Trail from Chimney Pond.

Pamola Four, a technical route.
