Angry Pitch (WI3, 20m bill goobie/don ricker February 2005) is very temperamental and fleeting.
Facing near south and on the fundy coast it's both temperate and sun exposed. The pitch has a feeder stream that keeps it wet but the sun cooks it just as fast on warm days. It's best to hit this spot during or immediatly after an extended cold snap.
A tremendously scenic location for climbing, again keep in mind the tides, only the highest of highs will undercut this climb though and the stairs are there for quick egress.
If the ice is out, there is a rock climb starting 25 meteres along the other cliffs (turn right at the bottom of the stairs and walk until you see an obviously climbable wall. There are anchors at the top to set up a rope (the rock is not generally safe to lead).
Take 114 south out of Moncton, Follow all signage to "cape enrage". The roads are now plowed all the way to the cape (previously it required a 5km hike in the winter months).
When you reach the main buildings at Cape Enrage head east along the protective cable that parallels the cliff face until you arrive at the stairs down to the beach. Immediately at the bottom of the stairs you will see the climb. Top roping is easy to setup, be aware of the underlying ice beneath the snow when walking on the top as the feeder stream is fairly wide in places.
