Conditions are pretty awesome in both these places right now!!
2 new variations in Cape Chignecto to High & Wild:
-climb pitch 1 and 2 both WI2 60m to have your pick of High and Wild proper WI4 55m, High and Wild right WI3 M3 55m FFA Max Fisher Luc G or High and Wild left WI4 25m FFA Luc Gallant & Max Fisher.

There is a skin track into Moose River right now.... 1hr to the base if you're moving fast.

NB Pillar is in great shape!
Simply Forgotten WI5- M4R 60m FFA Max Fisher & Luc Gallant 08/03/15
Climbs the left most line above NB Pillar and Bagtown. Excellent steep technical climbing with a spicy ice to rock transition close to the top. Climb left and up rock and moss filled groove to a good rappel tree 10m after topping out ice.

Max and Luc took us in to this gem of a spot last weekend and we were not disappointed. Wow! Such great climbing in a beautiful setting. We climbed what may be a new route in the falls above the Missing Amigo. Here is the info on it:

The Cauldron of Doom WI 4+ 16 m G. Hughes, M. Delaney, A. Zucculo, A. Boerlage
Climb The Missing Amigo and continue upstream. On the left hand side at the back of the gorge are several nice lines of ice. Climb the longest line of blue ice. Steep, pumpy climbing. Be careful navigating your way in here as there are several areas where the ice on the river is not frozen due to the current. Just below the route is a bubbling pool of unknown depth which will further motivate you not to fall off this climb.
