Bon Echo climbing re-opened

By July 21, 2016

EDIT: Climbing has been re-opened as of July 29, 2016. Climbers must sign the Code of Conduct before climbing at Bon Echo.

Bon Echo Code of Conduct

We are passing along the following message from the Alpine Club of Canada, Toronto Section.

The Superintendent of Bon Echo Provincial Park has informed the Alpine Club of Canada Toronto Section that starting immediately all climbing has been suspended until further notice.

The suspension was a result of a recent incident, and no one was hurt. The board of the Alpine Club of Canada Toronto Section and the Bon Echo Committee are collaborating closely with the Park to open access as soon as possible.

Weekends at the Bon Echo hut are subsequently canceled until further notice.

Until the matter is resolved please respect the wishes of the Park and refrain from climbing at Bon Echo. We will let you know as soon as the suspension is lifted.

We appreciate your cooperation and we look forward to climbing at Bon Echo again soon. If you have any questions please contact either the Board of Directors (membership@alpineclubtoronto.ca) or the Bon Echo committee (bonecho@alpineclubtoronto.ca).

Sincerely,
The Alpine Club of Canada Toronto Section Board of Directors
