Access issues inherited from Eardley Escarpment
The Eardley escarpment is contained in Gatineau park, managed by the National Capital Commission (NCC). The NCC has closed climbing at all but a few of the crags. As of 2011, only Home Cliff (main corner area and rightwards to Piton Highway), Western Cwm (left or western side), the Twin Ribs (Copa Cabana and Down Under), and Eastern Block are open for climbing.
Cliff-top access is forbidden, so climbs must be climbed from ground up.
The NCC's climbing information, including closures for nesting Peregrine falcons, is available (link valid as of spring 2017) at: http://www.ncc-ccn.gc.ca/places-to-visit/gatineau-park/things-to-do/rock-climbing-gatineau-park .
Ethic inherited from Eardley Escarpment
No new development or bolting allowed. Strong tradition of leaving trad routes trad, even if badly run-out.
