Red Rock Mountain in New Brunswick is a secluded backcountry crag that has been getting a lot of attention this year. The south-facing 500-metre-wide area is solid granite and granodiorite and the walls range from short to nearly 50 metres.

Caleb Mazurkiewicz, François Côté, Eric Sloan, Greg Hughes, Dalton Scott are among the handful of East Coast climbers who’ve been scrubbing rock and bolting the new lines. that range from 5.8 to 5.13+.

There are now almost 40 high-quality routes with potential for up to 100. The walls are: Creek Wall, Beach, Secret Garden, Hive, Secret and Watchtower. “The Creek Wall is shaping up to be an amazing sport climbing destination,” said Mazurkiewicz on New Brunswick Climbing. “The rock quality on the center of the cliff is stellar and lends itself to some fun, unique climbing.”

You can see where the wall is located on Google Maps here.
