Comments: Someone needs to breath more on lead. That's pretty pink in the face!

Comments: In 2010 Erick and I broke a bolt on this route very low to the ground. I'm not sure if that's the same bolt you mentioned. Weighted it... stepped onto it... and sheared the head clean off. It wasn't replaced since it was very low to the ground and other placements were available.

Comments: Typically, when reproducing another person's work it's a courtesy to ask them first. At the very least... a citation.

The reason why this map was not posted on this site is because other locals specifically asked me not to... and I respected that wish.

Comments: I believe it's also fair to mention that this area has the highest known density of black-legged ticks in New Brunswick. Sampling has shown that a significant number of these critters carry Lyme disease. Getting bitten can lead to serious consequences. Protect yourself with long pants and strong insecticide.

That said... it's worth the risk.

Comments: Hi Ian.

Cape Spencer has certainly been bouldered by many people in the past, myself included. I'm not certain that a guide was produced but a quick search and post on the CEC forum will net you some answers. As I said, some of the experienced SJ folks (Cory G., Tom A., Steve A) will probably chime in.

Just thought you ought to know since claiming FA's and renaming existing problems can sometimes get you into trouble.

Also FYI... I've proposed using this site to create an online guide ... more >>

Comments: Is this the same as the area which has been for years known simply as 'Cape Spencer'? The directions and description are a perfect match. You might consider asking around for the names of the problems, they've possibly been climbed many times in the past. Local, Cory G. would be the authority and he'd be happy to help.

You'd be able to contact him here :

Comments: Wow. My first Alpine style experience and we had the entire line to ourselves over the October long weekend. Great climb with wild stuff almost the whole way. The step down to the hanging flake off the anchors on the Finger pitch was airy!

Only thing to add is that I'm a 5.8 crag leader and this was a climb a bit over my head. I had to give almost all pitches to my stronger partner for the sake of speed. If this is your limit you might consider doing it in the summer when the days are longer.

Comments: I'm not a regular to the area but... I've led the Saigon's and didn't see any issues for an inexperienced second. Don't get me wrong... the moves on HTH are there, it's a great climb, but I wouldn't want my second to blow it after unclipping the bolt heading into the traverse.

Just thought I'd mention it up there since Inferno's upper pitches are so nice that's a logical place to introduce someone to the sport.

Cheers.

Comments: Really fun line. Would make a great little sport climb were bolting accepted. As is, It's still worth a top rope.

Unaware of any anchor potential at the cliff's edge, we constructed a bomb-proof anchor using an entire 60m line as a rope-o-lette!
Bomber!
Bomber!

Comments: Our party did this line as a means to get at Inferno on our last trip to Whitehorse. Great line but be prepared. It's spicy. Perhaps not ideal for taking inexperienced seconds due to tricky traverses.
