This is a great place spread over 3 or 4 areas, with hard old granite and a nice variety of trad, bolts (to 5.13c or so) and some nice slab climbing.
Some hiking and a beautiful view of the valley.
Only a half hour from Ottawa.
Book by Peter Slivka of VR
'Selected Climbs and Sandbags Around the Eardley Escarpment'
Dated (1995) but good maps and many good climbs and projects that are now climbs. Newer book with many more routes 'Climbing on the Eardley Escarpment' by Yann Troutet, available at MEC and other fine outdoor retailers!
