Description 

This cliff is some of the best granite in New Brunswick. The upper cliff is really solid rock with extraordinary cracks that you will wish were longer. This area is rarely visited and with time the rock rough exterior will become a little less painful, Bring Tape. The bottom cliff offers the best and highest concentrated of hard sport climbs in NB. The routes on the lower cliff are a mix between horizontals, slopers and fantastic one of a kind features that make every route a classic.

Getting There 

This is a new climbing area. From the Welsford Irving follow the 101 for roughly 10 KM or so. A little while after Queen's Ridge Rd turn left onto an unnamed road, usually marked with flagging tape around a pole. This road will quickly turn to dirt. Follow the road for another 5 minutes or so, passing a compost area on your right. At the end of the compost area turn right and drive past a small 'lake' , then turn left onto a bit rougher of a road. After another 5-10 min you will come to the top of a hill. The pullout and trailhead are on your right. The trail should be marked with flagging tape and also a sign. Follow this trail for an easy 10 min to the top of the cliff. It is easily possible to drive a car to the trailhead, although the road may be quite muddy after rains.

Featured Route For Bald Hill
Deception Dike 10c/d

Deception Dike 5.10c 6b 20 VII 20 E2 5b  North America : Canada : ... : Lowwer Tier
At the far right end of the main wall is a right trending dike which looks like a 5.6. The dike becomes very faint at the end and a difficult top-out variation is possible. Very nice climbing until the ridiculously hard last move to pull over the top (mono-sloper-sidepull-highstep-hand-foot-match-mantle-dyno anyone?) The first route climbed at Bald Hill. A possible exit may also go out left to a crack.Description by P.J Adamson...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
