BETA PHOTO: BFD Rock's NW aspect. The route "the Smell" is lo...


BFD Rock is a short crag on the west side of and right on the road that cuts through the Twin Sisters area.

A number of short, half pitch routes can be found here.

Grade ranges from scrambles to the imposing route, The Smell, a steep, improbable line on the formations NW aspect. The Smell apparently named for an unpleasant outhouse at the base which is now gone.

Take care not to disturb the residents of the very nearby campsites.
