Flatrock2014-BlackDiamond_GSL-6055 Black Diamond athlete and tech rep, J.P. Ouellet giving a workshop on trad climbing hardware at Flatrock Climbing Festival in Flatrock, Newfoundland.

The Alpine Club of Canada’s Newfoundland Section’s Annual Flatrock Climbing Festival is over for another year and continues to grow and improve every season. An estimate 150 people took in the event that saw more than 20 routes with top ropes hung on the seaside crag in Flatrock, Newfoundland, 30km north of St. John’s. This year special guest J.P Ouellet of Black Diamond visited and gave workshops on beginning trad climbing. …more photos to come!

Big thank you to organizer Keely Whitelaw, the Rope Gun Crew and all the volunteers on making this event such a success.
