Scarborough/ Misty Cliffs climbing

Postby BradCT » Fri Dec 18, 2009 12:59 pm

Hi All,

Can anyone steer me to a topo/ info on climbing in the Scarborough/ Misty Cliffs area? One particular 'massif' just off the coastal road grabs my eye every time I pass it!!
I would imagine you've gotta time this one just right, otherwise I'm sure you'd be slippin and sliddin all the way up.

Any advise and direction would be appreciated!

Cheers,
Brad.

Not sure about a topo, but be aware that the cliff is on private land and the land owner not keen on climbers.
If memory serves the grades are around 25/6 ish.

If the land owner doesn't scare you away, the state of the bolts might!

Thanx Justin,

Didn't realize that there were bolts!? Thought I'd need to place gear... prob will anyhow as I'd certainly agree on the rusty bolt theory!

I'll put on my 'nice' face when approaching the owner. Thank you for the advice.

Cheers.
