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.
