We will meet at the end of Northfield road, about a 10-15 minute drive off of Highway 19 in Nanaimo. If group members are unsure about the location we can plan an earlier rendezvous and convoy to the crag. From the parking it is a 10-15 minute hike uphill to the crag. The base is fairly shaded, bring water and snacks.

This is not meant to be a teaching trip, but you may learn some skills from other climbers.
