Description 

Largest concentration of cliffs in the Welsford area, or all of New Brunswick for that matter. Trad, mixed gear and occasional sport routes. Quality rock abounds. The stated intent of local developers was to leave this area mostly trad, however, anyone coming from the Rockies will probably find that the place has quite a few bolts. Developers can read the stated local ethic in Bérubé's guidebook.

Getting There 

2km South of the Rt101/Rt7 intersection Cochrane Lane turns off east, crosses the Nerepis Rivere and bends south. It becomes a dirt road. You will notice a fence on the east side and a large gravel pit behind the fence. Park north of the white sign on the fence. Crawl under the gap in the fence and cross the farmer's land following the trail along the back of the field. Dogs MUST be on leashes... the farmer has horses, sheep and dogs roaming the field.

P1: Go up and slightly right around the huge block. Head straight up to the obvious ledge with the large tree with a sling. **Note: there is a sloped block below the face leading to the ledge... it MOVES! Watch your fingers and toes. Also... the big block on which the slope block sits will move as well. Be gentle and everything looks like it should stay put for quite some time.P2: Traverse left off the ledge and head up a vertical crack system. One Pitch: Most people climb it in a single pit...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
