Type of Climbing

  • Reservations to climb at Turtle Crag are MANDATORY. Reservations can be made HERE.

    The base of The Turtle is on private property and the landowner resides approximately 100m downhill from the cliff. Our agreement with the landowner allows for 12 climbers per day; consider Nemo or Rattlesnake if you do not have a Turtle permit. Our continued access to this crag is dependent on climbers being on their best behaviour when visiting this area.

    Please refrain from yelling, profanity or leaving human waste in the forest below the cliff. Also, leave the hammocks and boom boxes at home. No dogs or any other pets are permitted into the Turtle Area. The Turtle is also not suitable for large groups (that is, more than four people). To prevent erosion, climbers must stay on the main path. This is particularly important in the terraced corner area. Helmets are strongly recommended. Please bring a stick-clip and use it for every route to help prevent unnecessary injuries. While top-roping is acceptable (set up on lead), please refrain from monopolizing routes that other climbers would like to lead. Further route development is not allowed in this area. Finally, these rules are not negotiable.

  • Halton Region fees at parking lot. $7/adult on weekends.
