Description

This basalt crag near the town of Saint Andrews has between 30 and 40 single pitch routes, most of which are well bolted sport climbs. Grades range from easy 5.3 trad climbs to mid 5.12 with most routes falling somewhere in the middle. Due to its location being further from Fredericton and Saint John compared to Welsford, Greenlaw sees little traffic and unfortunately some of the routes are not as clean as they once were. Nevertheless, this crag is definitely worth the visit and has a few classic climbs that are worth the effort to get to.
This crag is on private land so be mindful and respectful and leave no trace.

Getting There

Make your way to Route 127 and park on the side of the road near house #3709. Walk up the driveway of house #3703 which leads to a wooden gate and service road. Lift the gate and go through (make sure you put it back in place) and continue on a dirt road until you reach a power line. Turn left and follow the power lines until near the bottom of a gradual hill. Here you have 2 options. 1. Look for a blazed trail leading into the woods at power line pole #55. Follow this trail which takes you to the right end of the cliff. Option 2. Continue following the power lines for another 3-5 minutes, passing under a power line that goes up the mountain (a line that runs perpendicular to the main power lines you are following). Shortly after passing under that line, there is an ATV trail on the right. Take this trail and you will reach the cliff near Salted Jesus 5.8.
