A blog post isn't going to do Buckle Up V8 justice. This climb would get stars in a Heuco Tanks guidebook whereas many of our climbs wouldn't even be documented.  Pure face climbing and by far the hardest climb on the biggest holds of anything in Nova Scotia. This climb is unlike anything else on offer.


It blows my mind to think of Chris Eager doing the first ascent of this bold rig in 2002. This line is ALL CAPS BOLD. It would have been a full on jump for Chris, with old school pads, dirty holds and a terrible jagged landing (fixed now). In the immortal worlds of Eazy-E: Real Mother Fucking G.

With modern bouldering pads, and a pile of dead fall to even out the landing it's on the enjoyable side of scary. Don't let the fisheye fool you, this boulder is massive.
