Description

Bouldering area very close to Ottawa offering 60+ developed problems in 3 concentration areas and numerous undeveloped lone boulders or small concentration areas. A few real 25' highballs that should be roped can be found here too. Mostly granite walls and blocks with the off quartzite oddity. Landings are a mixed bag. Lack of use has allowed many of the slab and wet problems to start to get mossy and dirty.

Access is questionable, at best. This is not part of the escarpment, so one might argue it isn't covered by the closure -- but the current phrasing on the NCC website is to list only the sections of the park where climbing is open, and this is not listed.

Approach

Park at the Gabrielle-Roy Campus of CEGEP. This is a pay lot during weekday, currently $6 for the whole day. Take the #26 pathway behind the college across the field. Cut into the woods to the left following an unmarked trail until you encounter a marked snowshoe path. Take this path uphill and look for grey walls on your left. This is La Ganja. Continue up this trail to the bike path and go right to get to Spanish Bike Neighborhood and Popeye.
