Hey guys,

My job has a possibility of sending me to Newfoundland for a period of time (6mo - 1yr I think). I was just curious as to what the climbing (and other general outdoor activities) are like in the area? Looking at the MP page, it seems like there is a lot of it, just not listed here. Found a bunch of stuff surfing the web, but was hoping for some first hand stories! Let me know whats good.

Thanks!

Hello MP.

There is an active community - Facebook search for 'Climb Newfoundland Discussion'. You might find someone willing to provide beta there.

Hi Alex,
I'm one of the people who started the aforementioned Facebook group and also own the Climb Newfoundland site (www.climbnewfoundland.com). What you're going to find all depends on where in the province you are. Around St. John's there is plenty of developed rock and ice climbing as well as a gym... The rest of the island has plenty of rock but not a lot of development, some around the west coast and some amazing stuff on the extremely remote south coast.

On top of that there is basically good opportunity for most outdoor activities that don't involve mountains... world class hiking, sea kayaking etc. Let me know if you want any more specific info.

Cheers,
Phil
