Description 

Nova Scotia, the land of the sharp granite. The bouldering is second to none and has become a real destination. The roped climbing is generally short and technical. Grades are steep, and the gear can be sparse. Many virgin cliffs.

Getting There 

Most of the climbing is in and around the largest city of Halifax, with several major cliffs in Cape Breton.
