Flagpole Arete - York Redoubt

Halifax Bouldering is truly spectacular in the variety of locations. Looking for bouldering in a WWII fortress? Halifax has you covered. Nick Sagar's 2002 line Flagpole Arete V6 is special experience. The boulder affords some privacy nestled in a shady grove of trees inside the York Redoubt fortification! 

Besides the beautiful and unique setting, it's a quality line. Tricky moves to turn the corner and get established, followed by pleasant flowing moves up the arete. It climbs in style and difficulty very much like the top-out sequence of Resurrection V8.

Access here is an extreme privilege - don't fuck it up. No crowds, no music, no power screams, brush your ticks, keep quiet, and leave no trace.
