Cape Split from Baxters Harbour
The cliffs are approx 90m/200ft straight down. There is a 16km return hike from Scot's Bay to the edge of the cliffs. From these cliffs, I've read that you can hear the tides rushing in at 13 knots (15mph/20kph) or more, causing rip tides to appear. Mathematicians calculated that 14 billion tons of water flow past the split twice a day. At peak times, these channels see flows that equal all the combined flows of all the rivers and streams on Earth! Its amazing to see how fast the water levels rise.
The split also marks the start of North mountain range which forms the Blomidon cliffs that have a nearly vertical drop of 290m/600ft straight to the water. Some people actually try to scale the Blomidon cliffs.
