/ Climbing near Toronto?
Does anyone have experience climbing in Ontario?
I'm looking for information on indoor walls or local sport/trad crags.
lol.... toronto and squamish
im staying in London for a few weeks and i want to do some cultural sight seeing...
then someone tells me to go to Jerusalem for some cool sights....
the UK to israel flight would probably be cheaper too.
yes there are several indoor climbing places in toronto. most of them are west of the downtown core
should be some outdoor climbing possible in the escarpment.
here is a useful link
Check out http://www.ontarioclimbing.com/ & http://www.rockclimbing.com/routes/North_America/Canada/Ontario/ for stuff close to Toronto...and http://www.escaladequebec.com/ for Quebec...
Have a great trip, watch out for the mosquitoes and if planning on crankin' on hard stuff, early morning is best as summer temps in southern Ontario and Quebec are regularly mid + 30's
Having just moved from there, the closest rock near Taranna is easily an hour drive away. Good luck getting a guide book too, there is reputedly a new one coming out, but that's been the case for the past two years.
Would second Bon Echo as a climbing destination, the Alpine Club of Canada http://www.climbers.org/bon-echo-and-our-cabin runs a boat every weekend.
We got up to Lion's Head and the Peninsula every chance we got. The lines are serious as you have to rap in then climb out.
