Eagle's Nest is a great example of urban climbing at its best. (for atlantic canada anyway) The cliffs overlook the Bedford Basin, and are south facing.

There are numerious lines that are wide ranging in skill levels. A book has been published outlining the names and grades of the routes.

Climb Nova Scotia conducts much of their instruction in this area due to its close proximity.

If you live in Halifax, Eagle's Nest is your "climb after work" spot.

I have written the biography of Horace 'Rusty' Westmorland 1886-1984. Born in Uk, emigrated to canada 1911, some first ascents in Rockies - military career in Canadian Army, OBE, many first ascents here in UK 1900's, founder of Keswick Mountain Rescue Team.

I have written about his discovery and first ascents of Eagle's Nest and was wondering if anyone in the area, elderly climbers etc, have any written or photographic images of early climbing at the crag and specifically, involving Rusty Westmorland?

Similarly, is there any mention of him as being the discovery of the crag in your area?
look forward to hearing from you or anyone who could help.

ANSWERS are in this forum:   Rusty Westmorland - discoverer of Eagle's Nest
