DescriptionThe highest concentration of established routes and boulder problems in Newfoundland. The crags are secluded, but have short approaches.
The rock is a coarse grained conglomerate sandstone. The rock is good quality for the most part, although there are some loose sections, mainly the blasted section of main face (don't climb there).
Routes are usually mixed pro: if there is no good gear available, there will usually be bolts. There are a number of sport climbs, but some of them involve a gear placement or two. Pro may be tricky to place as the rock is pebbly.
Bouldering is a mix between boulders and the shorter sea cliffs with a variety of styles and difficulties.
Great scenery, in the summer months there are often whales close to the crags, especially main face. Most of the crags get morning sun.
Getting ThereThe town of Flatrock is about 20 minutes North of St. John's. In the town there are three parking areas for the crags. For the International and Locker areas you can park in the church parking lot on Wind Gap Road and for all other areas you can park at either a pull-off on Wade's Lane or the public wharf which is between Wades Lane and the church.
