A series of granite bluffs above the town of Swift Current. There is overhanging, vertical and slab climbing all within a small area with huge potential for development.

Getting There 

Heading south down the Burin Peninsula on Route 210 you will enter the town of Swift Current, shortly after entering the town turn right onto Seaview Drive and head briefly up the hill to park at the cemetery.

A wide trail begins behind the cemetery and goes up the hill and then at a small clearing you take a narrower trail into the woods (shown in the picture attached to the area). The main trail into the crags is marked with tape as below (we will be taping the other trails soon). Check out each walls individual page for more detailed info and the map attached for an overview.

A really fun route on good rock with great protection. Also a great way to access the top of the crag if you want to set top ropes on other routes.Climb up the ramp to the right until you reach the double crack system with a tree. Climb around the tree and up the cracks and around the block until you reach a small ledge. From the ledge climb the finger cracks to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
