-South facing wall gets lots of sun & dries quickly
-Shady belay cuts down on wind exposure
-Secluded location feels isolated (No crowds!)
-Great views of Whale Cove Lake & Terence Bay
To be avoided during bug season!
Cliff top can be accessed at the right end of the wall via 3rd class trail (4th class if you don't walk far enough!) for TR setup and great views.
**Keep in mind: the tree anchor is directly above the water requiring careful set up & descent to KEEP ROPES DRY!**
After rounding the southern tip of Whale Cove Lake and continuing up the eastern coast for ~100m, The Gnar Wall rises out of the lake on the left.
Facing the cliff, The Gnar Wall can be found on the right hand side, around the corner from the tiered end of the cliff. Look for the slab with bolts rising out of the lake.
A boat tie up (tree) can be found at the low, exposed granite boulders sticking out of the shore near the base of the cliff.
Cliff top can be accessed at the right end of the wall (uphill from 'Heavy Gnartillery') via 3rd class trail (4th class if you don't walk far enough!) for TR setup and great views.
