We finally got them!! πŸŽ‰

Featuring local climbers shot by local photographers, the OAC calendar is a tribute to everything Ontario climbing has to offer.  With a mix of climbers, crags, and disciplines featured, there’s no better way to celebrate the growing Ontario climbing scene.

Calendars are available for a $25 donation each, plus shipping via Canada Post.  All proceeds from calendar sales go toward promoting, advocating for, and maintaining open access all across the province. Calendars are shipped in an untracked cardboard envelope for protection.

Online purchases can be made at the link in our bio! πŸ”—

Want to save on shipping? Find our calendar at a gym near you soon!  We'll be dropping them off over the next few days -- we'll announce their arrival as we make our rounds!

The cover photo for 2024 belongs to @dustin.jj , and shows @ty.sarah (and @always_kean) heading up Agitez Bien.  What faces will you recognize this year??
