New Features - Sun and Wind

Bouldering in Nova Scotia's climate can be finicky at the best of time. 

Two new icons have been added to the site to help you get the most of your sessions - wind exposure  and sun exposure .

In the winter you'll want to find sun and avoid wind. The summer is pretty much the opposite. 

1. RTK V12  
Start on crimps, traverse across face and finish up corner. (FA G. Losier 2007)

In the example of RTK above you can see it's an ideal winter spot - sunny most of the day and wind exposure only from the south west - rare in NS winter. In summer it would be a buggy hellscape.

As data is confirmed, the topos will be updated. Feel free to help with suggestions using the boulder problem submission form.
