Sport and trad climbing over the ocean; Rappel in and climb out.

Getting There 

Park near the gravel road at the back of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) building off East White Hills Road.

Follow the dirt road which goes down to the ocean and at the end take the East Coast trail towards the south. After walking a few hundreds meters into the woods you should find a trail on the left leaving the main trail. Shortly after taking the secondary trail you reach four gaps in the trees which can be used to access the routes and the larger trees can be used to set up rappels.
