Here is a photo gallery from Alpine Club of Canada’s 2013 Flatrock Climbing Festival in Flatrock, Newfoundland. This event just gets more incredible every year as the climbing sports become more popular and people discover just what a great place Newfoundland and Labrador is for sport and trad climbing. This year it was organized by the Newfoundland Section of the Alpine Club of Canada. As always, it had something for the hard core climbers and those curious to just try it out. ACCNL members were on hand to give instruction.
Flatrock is the most developed climbing area in the province so far but areas on the west coast around Corner Brook and Gros Morn National Park are being explored and large crags on the remote south coast of the island have been mapped and climbed. Major props to Beth Spencer and her merry band of organizers along with the sponsors who know a good thing when they see it!
