Map to Cemetery Face

The link below is to a map of Anglican Cemetery Road in portugal Cove. The road turns to dirt and the face is across from the first obvious pullout.,-52.831106&spn=0.019349,0.037079&z=15&om=1

Pic Cemetery Face

This is a picture of Cemetery Face from the pullout just below the face. To the left of the face is a ramp that allows easy access to the top. All the top anchors are easily reached. The face catches evening sun. At least one more line between yellow and blue. The face to the left is short but blank.

Cemetery Face

Two more lines were established on Cemetery Face in Portugal Cove this morning.

First was a 5.7 Trad line called Shrouded. I placed four pieces plus two top bolts. It follows an irregular crack which made placing cams problematic. It should be fine with passive pro.

Second is a 5.8 sport line called Shallow Grave. It has four bolts plus two top bolts for anchors (same as Shrouded). The line is only 20 to 25 feet high so the bolts are tight but necessary to prevent a possible ledge fall.

I see at least 2 more lines going up on this face, one an easy 5.10 and the other 5.10+ or 5.11-. We will see.

Jayce on Candy

I had Jayce out to Flat Rock today. We set a TR on Candy to see how he would do. Well...not one bit of fear. He is only 6 years old and he has got his first 5.7.

Next...Yellow Fever!

Maggie 5.11a

I finally junped on Maggie on Wed past. This is Jay on top rope nearing the crux. He was doing laps and making it look easy. I barely made it thru the crux after many attempts.
AN excellent climb. **** stars for sure.
