Last night a big crew of approx 30 people met at the Armdale Rotary in Halifax to kick off CNS’s Monday Night Bouldering. We headed off to Prospect Bay to keep the tradition alive and introduce outdoor climbing to some of those who are still in the early stages. The weather was warm and barely any bugs! I feel everyone had a great time and I am super stoked to see even more people out next Monday at Chebucto Head.
For those of you who are familiar with Prospect Bay you may be surprised to realize you are not that familiar afterall! The pile of boulders that once sat under Sang de Dragon are now dispersed! It has totally opened up!
A couple of boulders directly behind Debbie Does Dyno’s have opened up as well, creating a couple new problems that are decently hard!
Chris Richardson did a left variation of Sang de Dragon that runs up the series of tiny sharp crimpers on the left face (same sit start). Pretty Cool.

These Organic Pads are becoming a familiar site here in NS. Last night a small crew (Keith, Jess, NathanB and Scooter) headed to Chebucto Head for a little night session. Out of the five pads in attendance, four were Organic! The temperatures were near perfect with a cool breeze keeping the bugs out-of-sight. Some problems that saw ascents were the classic 8 inches (aka Slot Problem), Tough Sailors and Adrenaline Junkie.
After playing around for a while on the Twin Sisters area we headed to Fynnished just a bit further down the coast. By then we were climbing in the dark and making very little progress! That thing is Hard!!
