1.9. Ontario 2,134 routes in Region

Summary:
Trad, Boulder and other styles

Long/Lat: -85.785435, 50.187759

Unique Features And Strengths:

Mostly small to medium sized local crags.

Description:

Canada's 2nd largest province by area, and largest by population, with most of the population along the north and west shore of Lake Ontario -- metro Toronto and outwards.

Ontario is of generally low relief -- the highest point is about 690m (2260ft) above sea level. This tends to make for a lack of large cliffs and long routes, so Ontario has a reasonable amount of decent cragging, but nothing that is destination climbing.

The northern parts of Ontario tend to be nearly uninhabited wilderness and crown (publicly owned) land. Southern and south-western Ontario, especially the areas around Toronto, are more densely populated and access issues are often complicated.

Access Issues:

In the more populated areas of Ontario, especially southern and south-western Ontario (within a few hours drive of Toronto) access is often complicated, with many cliffs closed to climbing. The Ontario Access Coalition (OAC) monitors this, and negotiates for access to cliffs, or to avoid closures. They maintain a crag status list at: http://www.ontarioaccesscoalition.com/crag-status/

The Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry also maintains an online crown land use policy atlas. This can often be used to determine the ownership status of the land on which a cliff is located in Ontario. It can be found at: http://www.giscoeapp.lrc.gov.on.ca/web/MNR/NHLUPS/CLUPA/Viewer/Viewer.html .

Summary:
Trad, Sport and other styles

Long/Lat: -74.975398, 46.564015

Description:

Fascinating and welcoming destination, the Laurentian region is located north of Montreal. Its 22 000 km² (8800 mi²) of territory span south to north from One Thousand Islands River to the Mont Laurier; and east to west, from the Lanaudière region to the Outaouais region.

Plains and valleys of the Laurentians offer trekking over the hills and mountains and discovering a kaleidoscope of fascinating landscapes bursting with beauty. This is a little holiday realm with mountainside and lakeside cottages, lovely towns and villages, ski hills, network of cross-country ski trails, and top-notch golf camps.

Seduced by region’s nature and unique attractions, many Canadians and Americans set up a vacation home at the Laurentians.

The Laurentian region enjoys a well-deserved reputation for fine dining and regional specialties. In addition to restaurant dining, visitors can savor a meal at a sugar shack, pick apples straight off the trees, and spend a night at a luxurious inn or lodge.

A perfect destination for family vacations, the Laurentians house the National Park of Mont Tremblant, Quebec’s largest protected area. The famous bike trail known as the P’tit Train du Nord (Little Train from the North) winds its way through hills and villages for more than 200 km (125 mi). During the winter, the former railway line welcomes snowmobilers and cross-country skiers. Hundreds of destinations are there for you to choose!

1.11.2. Lanaudière 48 routes in Region

Summary:
Sport, Trad and Ice

Long/Lat: -73.880613, 46.591091

Description:

The region of Lanaudière is part of central Quebec and is located between the Saint Lawrence River and the Laurentian Mountains, between Mauricie and the Laurentides. Lanaudière attracts a good deal of interest from vacationers due to its unique character founded largely on the harmony between its culture and the surrounding natural environment. Lanaudière's area of 12,413.73 square kilometers (4,792.97 sq mi) stretch northwest from a shoreline of 60 kilometers (37 mi) on the Saint Lawrence River. Lanaudière is generally rural, while the urban areas are generally concentrated in the south of the region, such as Repentigny, Terrebonne and Berthierville. The altitude rises as one goes northwards; it is 20 meters (66 ft) near the Saint Lawrence River to almost 800 meters (2,625 ft) at the top of mountains near Saint-Donat and Saint-Zénon.

Lanaudière is made up of three distinct geographical groupings: the southern plain has cities and farming villages and includes many historical locations; the piedmont in the centre has become a vacation spot due to its numerous lakes and natural attractions, and the Laurentian Plateau in the far north in the forested country is known for its fishing and hiking.

Lanaudière's road network was developed according to three north-south axes (25-125, 31-131, 347), all of which have few links with the neighbouring regions. Even though this internal network is almost exclusively composed of secondary roads, it is well-designed for long automobile trips or for biking. Lanaudière has two wildlife preserves, the Rouge-Matawin and the Mastigouche, as well as part of the Mont Tremblant park. Further to the north, about an hour away from Saint-Michel-des-Saints, there is the Atikamekw indian reserve of Manawan.
