Dankeshen friends,

I'm in Toronto,


I climb generally in the Escarpment, its too close to say no, Yes, most parts of the Canadian Shield are granite, but there is little to no sport climbing there.

So, I'm asking again, is there any place anyone can recommend that fit the following criterion:

1.Not to far so I am still able to get a good weekend session over a long weekend, driving to crag. Most likely over Labour Day weekend.
2. Bolted, with routes ranging from 5.8-11
3. Granite Baby, give me that good stuff!

I've done a bunch in Quebec, its great, but often slabby, looking for a crag with lots of vertical and overhanging walls.

Dankeshen again.

You will be hard-pressed finding a granite crag ANYWHERE that's bolted like a sport crag.
Ticino, Italy
Of course, anything in the 8-10 range is still going to be a slab...

...kinda far from Canada though.
