An exciting update today that features video of two of Nova Scotia's best boulder problems. In fact, these are the two best boulder problems in the province under V10!! Both of problems are elusive gems - steeply overhanging, on large holds, powerful yet technical with committing top-outs.

Skillz Inventory was not included in "Halifax Bouldering" as it was discovered after the guidebook went to print. That shouldn't stop people from projecting this magnificent line. Easy to get to, the trail has been recently trimmed, and GPS is included on the topo.

The Hunted is another stellar boulder problem located on the peninsula in Grover. This area is also home to Black Beast V5 and Trail Blazer V9 - two of the very best problem at their respective grades. Despite quality that is virtually unrivaled anywhere else in the province, these problems have seen VERY few ascents since there was previously no trail and the bush whack was punishing. That has all changed, with the discovery of a new trail that is a virtual highway to these boulders. Even with the XXL pads not even a branch scrapes your sides. Get some!
