Big Pond is a small quartzite cliff located just off Highway 4, a few kilometres southwest of Ben Eoin Provincial Park. It has long been a popular cliff with Sydney climbers and for a short time was also a hot spot for bouldering. That is until the highways department diverted the road and consequently blue up (!) the precious boulders. No boulders, no bouldering!!! Luckily the Sydney boulderers found greener pastures near Louisbourg. The Big Pond cliff is visible from the road and is on private land that is used occasionally as a quarry. As of yet the climbing area has been unaffected by blasting, however future development may encroach upon the cliff (and with any luck it will create a second pitch for climbers!).
