About Ontario:

Ontario is fortunate enough to be the home of the Niagara Escarpment, a 700km long stretch of limestone.
It offers many quality climbing areas from the powerful Bouldering in the Niagara Glen, to the Trad routes of the Milton area, to the exposed Sport Climbing with hanging belays at Lion's Head.

New areas are being discovered in the southeast as well as in the north, and Ontario climbers are pushing their limits farther than ever with recent ascents of Ontario's first V11(the Phoenix, Niagara Glen) and Titan, Ontario's first recognized 5.14a (Lion's Head).
For all access issues please see the website of the Ontario Access Coalition (OAC).The OAC just put up an access document, that quickly identifies access issues at each crag. The latest area information is available at their site.
