Access Status

Land Manager

  • Provincial Nature Reserve

Type of Climbing

  • Trad
  • Sport


  • Tolerated as a non-conforming use of the park. Highly sensitive area. Strive for minimal impact and low profile. All fixed protection to be camouflaged. Do not disturb the cottagers. Approach via Bruce Trail entrance.

    Good mix of sport and trad, starting at higher grades mostly 5.10 and above. Routes below 5.11 at the Latvian Ledge had hangers removed in 2020 - hangers have not been replaced. Extremely complex the first visit, with hanging belays, rappel-in climbs and a long approach.
