The first ascent of the 85-metre line was back in 2010 by Matt Peck and Roger Fåge. “We made the three-and-a-half hour drive from Moncton to Cape Split to get on the climb,” said Hughes. Read the first ascent report here.

“The route was certainly everything we thought it would be based on the stunning photos Matt and Roger took on the day of the FA. It was in primo condition. Big, fat and solid. Spacious belay ledges, super cool features and a pleasant top out only add to this gem.”
