Summary

Long routes on some of the higher cliffs (250m) in Ontario.

Description

There is rock throughout the park -- most of the definition of the "Sleeping Giant" is from a band of cliffs around a raised bluff. The area diagrammed is the most developped area.

Access issues

This is in a provincial park, and as of guide publication in 2006, the administration had not decided how rock climbing would fit in with the uses of the park. (Not forbidden, but not an approved activity either.) Avoid doing anything that might jeopardize a favourable decision.

Approach

Long. About 8.5km of hiking, though much of it can be ridden on mountain bikes to save time.

Where to stay

Camp at the Marie Louise campground. Or rough-camping is allowed along the trails towards the climbing, including fairly close by. (Permits required, pay at iron ranger at parking.)
