Description

The rock quality here is as good as it gets. It is world class granite bouldering. There are probably hundreds of problems, many of which have not be done. It's as good as the rock you would find in some of Colorado's premier bouldering areas. If you had to pick one developed bouldering area to visit in Newfoundland, this would be it. The sandstone at blackhead is also a contender, but this area doesn't have as many problems.

Majority of the climbs seem to be on the upper end of grade scale. However, there is many boulders here, so there is lots of easy problems to last quite some time.

There is a good mix of highballs and low balls. The landings can be quite spicy as there is a lot of talus, so extra pads wont go a stray. The approach is like 3 mins, so bring as many pads as you can get your hands on.

Getting There

Located just minutes pass Stephenville on highway 460.
There will be a turn off on your left down towards a group of trailers and cabins.
Drive down this dirt road till you reach the Scott Pollard Memorial Trail, this is where you park and the same entrance to the climb trail.
Instead of following the trail go left at the large boulder near the entrance. This trail is a bit rough and in need of maintenance, eventually it will link up with a more established trail behind a cabin. Follow the trail up the mountain.
Eventually you will come to an obvious boulder on your left go past it and there will a ladder. Area A begins at the top of the ladder.
