New Climber's Guidebook for New Brunswick

With big excitement, a new Rock Climber's Guide for New Brunswick was released this summer. Dom Caron took on the massive project to update the previous guide. There's been so much new development in recent years- we greatly needed this. The new book has lots of photos and easy to follow cliffline maps and photo-topos. There's a free sample online - go check it out!

Maple Sap and Cape Chignecto

Meg and I had a great couple weeks in New Brunswick with my parents...Who says April has to be a sit-inside-watch-the-rain kind of month?? There's lots to do! We collected maple sap for syrup, ate fresh salads from the greenhouse, backpacked along Cape Chignecto, rock climbed at Welsford, and saw so many great folks!
