Local Climbing

All of our climbing courses and adventures are taught at Metcalfe Rock and Rattlesnake Point, but we are also surrounded by so much other great climbing. Below are a few of our favourite cliffs to climb in the Beaver Valley and Bruce Peninsula.

Metcalfe Rock

Metcalfe Rock, our "Head Office", has a little something for everyone: top roping, sport climbing, traditional and mixed. It also has a wide variety of graded routes, ranging from 5.4 to 5.14, within a 5 minute walk. Pictured: Trevor Macdonald bears down on 'Bob and Briams Bogus Adventure' 5.11b.

Lions Head

Lion's Head is the gem of the Niagara Escarpment. Beautiful limestone climbing, right on Georgian Bay.

A wide variety of climbing skills are needed to safely climb at Lions Head, but it makes for amazing adventures and memorable positions. A classic example of the Lion's Head style, Dave Zieleniewsi and Leslie Timms on 'Global Warming' a traditional 5.10d.

Devil's Glen

Devils Glen is perhaps the most stellar crag in the Beaver Valley, especially if you want to climb 5.13, though it is hard to pick as they all have something great to offer. At DG, there is something for everyone, from old school moderate trad and mixed routes, to new school sport clip ups. Pictured here: Jany Mitges stares down the crux of 'Jet' 5.12d.

Maybe the best hard sport route in the Beaver Valley- Leslie Timms focused in for the send of 'Legends of the Fall' 5.13b.

Old Baldy

The best views and exposure in the Beaver Valley. Old Baldy also has really cool fossilized limestone with a pluthera of sport routes mostly in the 5.11-5.12 range, with a handful of others between 5.6 and 5.13d. It also has a few classic traditional lines like 'The Anniversary' , a spicy 5.11 (Pictured here).
