Serious Callers Only

You won't find better rock quality for slab climbing anywhere in the world. Despite slab being the most popular wall at the local gym, there is a conspicous lack of traffic on Nova Scotia's best outdoor slab. 

Indoor slab will teach you to negotiate giant protuberant neon colored obstacles and do akward dynos one greasy foot slip away from an expensive dental bill. Outdoor slab will teach you that pucker factor is not a figure of speech. It should be graded on the P-scale. All slab is V4 anyway.

Booby Trap V4/P7 in Grover is a magnificent high rolling slab. After wonderful big moves on pleasant holds, things get serious quickly. Aptly named, it can't be down climbed or backed off from - guarenteeing some uncomfortable life choices as it gets progressively thinner at the top.

The holds at the top of Booby Trap are not nearly as good as your sphincter would like.
