Keeping us climbers at bay during the winter can prove to be hard for some. Many go on big roadtrips, some resort to the plastic and others somehow get a kick out of climbing frozen waterfalls.
Although the routes might not be as huge as in the Rockies, Ontario and Quebec definitley have their share of Ice Routes. With a few good weeks of good solid cold each season there seems to be enough around to keep everyone busy.
Although there are many more routes than listed here, these two guides should get you out on some of the consistent(good) climbs in the Ottawa Valley near Gatineau, Calabogie, Madawaska and some of the surrounding areas.
Not included in these guides but well worth getting to are:
Here is a GREAT link to some downloadable guidebooks and some great information on Ontario Ice Climbing:
ONTARIO ICE CLIMBING PAGE
They are all within a few hours drive of Ottawa and I will try to collect the information I have and make it into a printable document within a few weeks.
Along with the Quebec section (look for it on the webpage), hopefully, there is enough information to sort you out. Enjoy the up and coming winter season!!
