This crag is situated in the industrial city of Saint John. Although, this doesn't sound appealing, the crag is nestled in an old limestone quarry in a peaceful residential neighbourhood. Despite being a decommissioned quarry, the rock is very solid as no explosives were used when it was exploited over a century ago.
This place collects sun, and dries out much more quickly than you'd expect. If the wind is blowing the right direction, it can be an excellent choice for early march / late november! That being said, sometimes the wind funnels in the quarry and it can be cold even in mid summer.
Please be courteous while visiting the area. The approach and the cliffs are on private property and the climbing here is tolerated. One confrontation with the owners or the neighbours and the privilege of climbing here could be lost.
Info to get there can be found on the preliminary topo written by Cory G. found here: www.beta-source.com/guidebooks/cedarpoint/cedar_point.pdf
Also, worth noting that Cory's topo is much more complete than what can be found on this website. Please read his topo before heading out there.

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.

Good point Chris. I usually inspect myself and shower every time I get home from CP.
