Hello

I am from Toronto and I am looking for a good bouldering spot to goto over the first weekend of July during Canada Day weekend.

We are looking for a spot that's not too far a drive (<9 hrs) and not too hot/buggy during that time.

We were thinking somewhere in new England could be a good bet, but I don't know any areas. I've thought of McKenzie pond, but it seems like it will be buggy around that time.

Anyone have recommendations?

EDIT: we are looking beyond Ontario as we have been to most places around here

Should've made it clear, we are looking for places beyond Ontario, we've been to most places around here (including Halfway log dump)

Smuggler's Notch, Vermont might not be to bad for bugs and heat. Val David would also be okay, though possibly not worth your drive.

Mac Pond will likely still have quite a few mosquitos (though the majority of the black flies are done). Snowy Mountain and Nine Corner Lake are also cool spots in the Adirondacks, but bugs might be annoying at both.

Pawtuckaway is a bit far and will probably still be buggy. The Gunks will be super busy and possibly too hot. Conditions will also likely be poor for anything in PA.
