Hi, well i have never posted here before so i may get something wrong :-/
So im going to be visiting my brother in Toronto in august/september time and would really love to get outdoors and try some bouldering whilst im in Canada, i have only been bouldering for 2 years so im not amazing or anything but im passionate and i like a challenge. Im open to travelling all around Ontario so even if you dont live in Toronto i would be more than happy to make a journey if it meant i got to climb/see cool stuff :-)
Anyone who thinks they may be happy to spend a couple of days climbing and hanging out, feel free to get in touch!

Yes, http://www.ontarioclimbing.com will probably be more useful.

As for bouldering in S.Ontario there aren't a ton of options. The two big areas are Niagara Glen (by Niagara Falls) and Halfway Log Dump (closer to Tobermory).

Top roping? Have we got the place for you! It's called Rattlesnake Point in Milton, a 45 minute drive west of Toronto. More slow and inexperienced top ropers than climbers at Stanage in the UK during a bank holiday.

Becs, I'm no boulderer, but even I know of more bouldering in S.O. than just those two areas Sly

True, but I was more insinuating that those two areas are the most popular and the easiest to dig up information on.

And I thought this forum was dead to you.

Ice climbing's done, Top Gear's playing on youtube, I'm bored, so I thought I'd cruise the old forums. Not so much that they're dead as much as I do more climbing than rockclimbing.com-ing. I know that must be a strange concept to some of the folks on here, the newbs and neophytes - imagine that, no time to post cause someones busy climbing Tongue
