A brand new area added today featuring GPS, photos and video for every established line. The Love Boat Boulder is a brand new area in the LOC! Recently developed, the top was so dirty and steep it needed to be scrubbed on a rope! Featuring some of the best climbs for their respective grades in the entire LOC:

1. Cerberus V7 SDS

    A powerful compression line with hard moves using good holds to an exciting finish. Stellar!
2. Scylla V4 SDS

    One of the most unique lines in the LOC - double campus start with feet hanging completely suspended over a ledge!!
3. Kharybdis V3 SDS

    Starts sitting, on side pulls, big move to arete, and finish as for "Scylla"
4. Charon's Obol SDS V5

    Powerful moves on holds much larger than is typical for the grade in Nova Scotia. Classic!

The beautiful boulder sits atop an outcrop, and has large holds, aggressive overhangs, and unique climbs.

There are several smaller boulders surrounding this gem with evidence of scrubbing - early ascents in the LOC long since forgotten. They aren't worth consideration given the spectacular quality of the Love Boat Boulder.
