Northwood Bluffs

13 Sport Climbs, 5 Trad Climbs


With arguably the highest quality rock of all Nanaimo crags, several fine, long routes and easy access, Northwood's popularity is steadily growing. A number of additional routes are under development. All routes are less than 30m except for Sunny Side Up which is likely 31m. Route grades still need consensus.
Be aware that there is still some loose rock on the routes so be cautious belaying and please wear a helmet.
