FLATROCK, NL – Newfoundland may not have the big walls of BC or Alberta but the rock and ice climbing is challenging and rewarding with beautiful approaches and crags that are not crowded. In fact you can often spend your day with only the ravens, foxes and whales for company. You will find yourself stopping your climb to take in the beauty around you.
