Helpless In The Face Of Your Beauty

Imagine pulling up in your Range Rover, you hop out dressed head-to-toe in LL bean's Fall 2018, you are enjoying a picturesque stroll down the coast for a sunset yoga session when this grizzled creature appears under your feet...


Or this grizzled creature...


Or perhaps this grizzled creature...


Scratch that. The last one is beautiful.

After 20 years of bouldering history, the community progression is well established. First you do The Wave, then you do Au Bouleau followed by Resurrection and then 5 more years pass and you either quit climbing or manage a real V10.

After going through this progression, I wasn't expecting to discover one of my top 10 favorite classics sitting overlooked in a popular area.




Iron Hide V7 is one of the best climbs in Nova Scotia. No hyperbole. It's fantastic. Comfortable holds, large flowing moves, intimidating scale and committing but secure topout. This thing is magnificent. 

Like past relationships, I cringe at all the terrible mismathes I've suffered though before finding this beauty. Iron hide is the V7 I've been waiting for.
