I'm going to be going to Niagara for the half marathon this weekend and I'm planning on staying in the area a few extra days to do some climbing.

I'm looking for something:

1) close to niagara (within an hour is perfect)
2) with easy setups for toprope and easy access
3) I can spend a few days enjoying
4) with camping near by

Buffalo Crag sounds good from the description. Since I'm not from the area does anyone have better directions than what's here?

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm not sure what the camping situation is at Rattlesnake point, a friend told me that its only group camping, but call and find out before you get your hopes up. For toproping this time of year Buffalo is probaly your best option. If you lead I'd suggest Nemo, Kelso is also good for toproping, but is North facing.

If you do any bouldering you may consider playing in the Niagara Glen. the weather next week looks okay, so I'll be trying to get to the glen this weekend and in the afternoon next week (if work doesn't get in the way). PM me if you're interested in some more info.
