Description 

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.

Featured Route For DFO

Unknown 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  North America : Canada : ... : DFO
This is the line of bolts immediately left of Zombie Mummers. The climbing at the bottom is fun, juggy 5.9 until the route converges with Merzhin Ar Strobineller. At this point, the left line of bolts goes at about 5.10a and the right line goes at mid 5.10. The left option is nicer, more consistent climbing....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

The rappel from the trees to the bolts at the bottom of the crag is about 50 meters.
