Description [Suggest Change]
So many good things about this sport crag so let's get started - it faces south, dries fast after a rain. the rock (granodiorite and gneiss) is well featured and solid with excellent friction, short approach (about a 5 minute walk), nice setting for being in a city (great view of the Irving Oil refinery :) and a good range of difficulty from slabs to overhanging with enough routes to keep you busy for a day. It will be possible to climb here year round. The routes are generally well protected, lots of bolts and in the right places but there are a few lines that may seem run out - again - the bolts are where you need them most. It is a good idea to carry a range of quickdraws including a couple of alpine draws for Shackleton's and Stuck in the Flow. There are bolted anchors with maillons for rapelling so getting down is easy. There is an easy walk up on the left hand side for setting top ropes.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
The cliff is located in east Saint John on city land. Drive to the end of Glen Road. As you approach the dead end look up and left - you will see the cliff. Do not park so as to block access to the atv trail (on right) unless you enjoy having your car keyed.
