Rock Climbing Near Ottawa!
The Eardley Escarpment as some call it, is a huge area of granite cliffs with bouldering, trad, and sport climbing for all levels and abilities. It is located very close to the Ottawa/Gatineau area in and around Gatineau Park. The cliffs are a great place to learn or a place to challenge yourself. Be weary that some of the routes here were graded a long time ago, so, add a few grades to some of the older climbs. Peggy, 5.8, is a classic on the 'Home Cliff' and is a must for any traditional climber. In the fall with the changing, colorful leaves these crags are highly recommended! This is a really good, extended, and informative GUIDE!!
