The main cliff is the extremely blank face approximately 100 feet tall and slightly overhanging. This could house the hardest lines in N.B and with work could have a few test pieces on it. It starts at the escape gully/cave and continues across the black face until the rock becomes blocky and loose.
Rappelling the main face can be done from a few small ceders on top of the cliff, your anchor should be within 10 feet of the top to insure the ends touch, TIE KNOTS a 60M rope just reaches. This is a fantastic and completely hanging rappel after the first 10 feet.

Getting There 

The only awesome 100' black face you can’t keep your eyes off.

This route is basically 'Don't be Jenga Direct'. Same start, but move left around the roof instead of right. A relatively short (but excellent) boulder problem will join you back onto Don't be Jenga just in time for the crux at the top. In my opinion, it's the best sport route in Saint John. Very fun.I am not good at grading, I gave it a 5.12- because its harder then Don't be Jenga (5.11+) but I don't know by how much. please climb it and let me know :)...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
