Beat the Heat in Digby

Cunnies have been poor lately in HRM, with temps in the high 20s, humidity approaching 100%, and frix in the single digits. This weekend the heat remains and it's going to rain in the LOC and TBay. What's a desperate pebble wrestler to do? If only there were a coastal, breezy area with big holds and shady overhangs in Nova Scotia.... 


Jump in the whip and head to Sandy Cove! It's well worth the trip, especially in the hot weather. In addition to the amazing and unique boulders, Digby Neck also offers full-amenity camping at Whale Cove Campground just around the corner, great swimming at Midway Lake down the road, Trout Cove sport climbing a few minutes away, and lots of opportunities for marine mammal spotting in the Bay of Fundy.
Sandy Cove problems are generally skin-friendly too, with lots of features. Maybe the best area in the province for new climbers, it also offers must-do moderates including Rob Grandy's Operation Bronze God (v5) and Chris Richardson's No Pressure (v4), as well as harder lines like Zig's Stick to Your Guns (v7), Paul Denzler's Unicorn's First Blood (V8), and Taylor Gilgour's Devil's Playground (V11). There's open projects too! Check out the topo for new video beta.
