Description 

Climbing and bouldering in close proximity on interestingly featured granite.

Getting There 

Leave St. John's on Pitts Memorial Drive, which eventually turns into the Conception Bay Bypass. Leave the highway turning left onto Minerals Road and follow the road past the mines until you reach fields and then a small road to the left. High clearance vehicles could continue along the road, or you can park before the turn off and walk.

The best bolted route at the Talc Mine. Climb the slab past a bolt to a diagonal crack (gear). Climb the diagonal crack for 10 feet until the second bolt can be reached via good holds. Follow the line of bolts past a vertical section with precarious climbing (crux) to easy ground. Scramble to the top, placing a couple pieces of gear on the way....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
