As part of Climb Nova Scotia's ongoing efforts to maintain and improve existing climbing areas, we will be holding a Columbus Wall Clean n' Climb day on Saturday, September 12.
Columbus Wall is a fantastic crag in Mosquodoboit, home to dozens of stellar trad, sport, and mixed climbs. Most climbs can be easily toproped, there are tons of moderate climbs for new leaders, and some harder gems are still awaiting first ascents making Columbus Wall a destination for climbers of all levels. The approach trail and trailhead are easy to find thanks to the recent reflagging by CNS volunteers Rich and Zig. If you've never been to Columbus Wall, now is your chance to check it out.
Despite all this awesomeness, many climbs are overgrown with moss and vegetation and in need of maintenence. Come on out on Saturday, September 12 and help clean a line or two and do some climbing afterward! Brushes will be provided, and if you need a harness, belay device, helmet or rope let us know and we can make those available too.
