Minister's face is an island that is located in the middle of the Kennebecasis River with cliffs rising out of the water and reaching heights of 250 feet.
The cliff is a conglomerate rock comprised of granite, limestone, basalt as well as lots of other types of rock and make for a incredibly unique climbing experience. The majority of the climbing on Ministers Face will be lower angle moderates but there are a few roofs and overhung walls that could potentially have some very challenging lines.
This is a truly incredible cliff but with poor rock quality in places and difficult access it will take a lot of time and resources to develop this classic climbing area into the moderate mecca it will be.

Getting There 

This cliff is only accessible by boat in the summer and fall or by walking across the ice during winter. You are able to park near the Rothesay yacht club and cross the river from there. I'm not sure where the best place to put a boat in would be.
