Description 

A big, low angled face with potential for several easy routes. The Rock is covered with quite a bit of moss but cleans off quite easily to leave good quality solid granite.

Getting There 

From the conception bay highway you can see the crag on the opposite side to the ocean and very slightly north of the original Holyrood area.

There is an established walking trail from the parking area all the way to the top of the cliff and there is a lookout point on top. The trail goes close to the base of the cliff but you will need to take a smaller trail from it for the final few feet.

Climbing Season

For the Newfoundland area.

Weather station 168.7 miles from here

"Are you guys going straight up the middle of that?" - A hiker with his kids.The most obvious route to the top going straight up the middle of the face. Most of the climbing is significantly easier than 5.7 with a couple of crux moves which are close to the bolts. The moves are fun, and although it is not an instant classic this would be a great spot to get a taste of multipitch or work on your skills.From the top you can either rap back to the base or top out and take the established hiking tra...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
