Beaver Valley Climbing Festival

By June 28, 2013
Free Spirit Tours and On the Rocks Climbing have organized the first climbing festival in Southern Ontario.  The Beaver Valley Climbing Festival is loaded with cool events and  opportunities for the climbing community to come together and  celebrate the great climbing that the Beaver Valley area has to offer.
Set for August 24th, 2013, the festival will be offering a full day of climbing clinics, competition, yoga and Aerial Silks Performance at Metcalfe Rock. Then come out for an after party complete with beautiful central camping (Dog Sled Farms in Rob Roy), music, dancing, food, bon fires, vendors and much more!  Did we mention massages too?
The festival is brought to you by the two local guiding companies of the area, Free Spirit Tours and On the Rocks Climbing and sponsorships from climbing related and local business are lining up with Joe Rockhead’s and Mountain Life being the first to jump in with their strong support.
The festival will be raising funds for the Ontario Access Coalition.  The OAC is currently working with Land Managers in the area such as Grey Sauble Conservation Authority (Old Baldy), the Ministry of Natural Resources (Kolapore: Metcalfe and Swamp) and Ontario Parks (Devil’s Glen) to ensure sustainable opportunities for climbing continue.  The festival is a great opportunity to showcase the great businesses, people and landscape that this area has to offer.
