Description

Dover Island is one of if not the best bouldering area around Halifax. Dover has the highest concentration of quality problems and is in a absolutely breath taking setting. It's an island off the coast of Peggy's Cove sitting in the Atlantic Ocean. The island contains freestanding boulders but is mostly short cliff bands of amazing granite. There is a Annual Bouldering Festival that is held usually in July. For more info visit: climbeasterncanada.com/view…

Getting There

If you would like to arrange a trip to the island you must contact local Norm Stone in West Dover at (902)823-3339. Please make arrangements at least 3 days in advance to ensure he will be available. Norm will inform you where to park on his property. The boat ferrying fee is $15 (Canadian) per person with a minimum charge of $75 (Canadian). The length of you trip to Dover is up to you there are great places to camp if you wish to stay more that a day. But be warned this is the land of sharp granite.
