Description

A small overhung face near the water. This boulder is a part on the slabs where people normally sit and enjoy the river.

When the river level is high the landing area is flooded and debris (mostly big sticks and garbage) is often washed into the landing zone. The landing is more likely dry in Summer and Fall

Access issues inherited from Ontario

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 Alliance of Climbers (OAC) monitors this, and negotiates for access to cliffs, or to avoid closures. They maintain a crag status list at: https://www.ontarioallianceofclimbers.ca/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 .

Approach

Approach same as 'Hog' but when you are on the slabs that people normally hang out on turn towards the water. There is a crack that is approximately 2 m wide, the moderately overhung face of the crack is boulder.
