About The Shrine:

Currently CLOSED by the National Capital Commission (as of 2010). Closer to Ottawa, under the hang gliding area. You can see them floating over as you climb. Nice shorter climbs, some good introductary lead climbs, with closer bolts and some steeper 5.8's 9's and 10's.
Approach: Follow the hang-glider trail for a few meters, until the gravel stops. Then branch to the left on an old cart track going along the base of the escarpment. Follow the cart track keeping you eyes out for a small cairn. If you crossed over the colvert you have gone to far. At the cairn turn right and follow the trail to the base of the shrine.
Approach Time: 15 min
Latitude, Longitude:
Access Issues:
Rock Type: Granite
Type of Climbing: Sport/Trad
Sun Aspect: All Day Sun
