Just a heads up for all Ottawa climbers

Also does anyone know anything about the accident they mention in the article?
Some frends of mine who work for MEC said they had to guide a ambulence by phone to Cardinal Rock witch is the middle of nowhere and no one realy climbs there.

Hey Christian!

I think the last time I ran into you we were both at the top of "Pete's Farewell" in the Daks last Fall! How goes it?

A friend phoned me this morning about this; apparently, access issues at Home Cliff made it onto the early morning news. The message on my answering machine was a bit garbled, but she seemed to be saying that the trail that leads from the pull-off to Home Cliff, (and Farm Rock, the Gallery and Bald Face) will be closed in the coming month.

Personally, I think my friend is panicking on the basis of some random news report. I e-mailed the ACC about it this morning; maybe they'll be able to tell us what's going on.

I dunno... I was at Home Cliff two weekends ago and didn't see anything amiss, (i.e., threatening signs, farmers running around with firearms and spouting obscenities, etc). I'll share what I find out from the ACC.

I think Ms. Laframboise was exagerating a bit when she spoke of the "onslaught of bodies" carried down from the Escarpment on a regular basis. Then again, I've only been at this for a bit over 2 years so who knows.

Cheers,
E

Is there a way to keep posted on this? I don't want to pi$$ any angry farmers off out of sheer ignorance. I haven't made many trips there lately but was planning on going. I'm not aware of the injuries though. Sounds dangerous. :D

I think the main point is that Ms. Laframboise doesn’t mind climbers using her land but the NCC/Gatineau Park has no policy on climbing in the park and therefore no contingencies for rescuing climbers/Hikers from that part of the park. Also the access point is not only used by climbers a lot of hikers and paragliders also uses the access point.
