As of August 16th, 2013 the two year trial period for purchasing bouldering permits at the Niagara Glen has lapsed. If you have not done so already, make sure to purchase your bouldering permit before bouldering at the Niagara Glen. Your cooperation is critical for climbers and the OAC to maintain a positive relationship with the NPC. If you are approached by NPC personnel, please gladly show them your permit and encourage others to do the same. The NPC made this decision in concert with OAC representatives and the OAC continues to support the NPC in its environmental and recreation sustainability efforts. Bouldering without a permit may result in loss of bouldering privileges. For details see the attached NPC press release: 2013-Bouldering in the Niagara Glen (NPC Press Release)

As always, make sure to practice ‘Leave No Trace’ principles and help educate other users to mitigate potential environmental impacts to the Niagara Glen.
