Eagle rock was one of the first areas in New Brunswick to be climbed. It was first explored by climbers in the mid 70ís with a few lines in the 5.1 to 5.5 grade that may be a little stiff by todayís standards. The climbing continued in this area for a few years but when Cochrane lane became more popular in the late 70 and early 80ís, the early climber focused on the larger wall across the valley.
Located on the right side of highway 7 coming from Fredericton, itís between the Irving in Welsford and the first exit in to Grand Bay-Westfield. You can pull off at the picnic area walk on the high way towards the Irving, there is a small cairn off of the left side of the road where the trail starts. The trail is currently marked with orange flagging tape and will lead to the great roof.
