About Nordic:

There is only one bolted route here so far, but everything can be top roped. I know of maybe 6 climbs on here, but I haven't even come close to finding all of the routes. We call it Nordic because the Nordic mine site isn't far from it, and was actually part of Rio Algome (mining company) property. There are oodles of [free] camping spots down the dirt road. Feel free to explore!
Nearest town or city: Elliot Lake
Directions: Right between Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie on Highway 17 (Trans Can), take the turn off onto highway 108. It'll take about 15 minutes to get to this site from there. You don't have to go all the way into town (although the town itself is only 2mins further), just turn onto Algome/Nordic Road (on your right if heading towards Elliot Lake), it is actually the road for the "Stone Ridge" golf course now, so you'll see a sign for that too. On this road you'll have to go over a bunch of stupid speed bumps they just put in to give golf carts the right-of-way (Why should real cars get the right-of-way on a public road anyhow?)... It just bugs me is all. Anyway, you'll see the rock face to the left as you drive. Once you get to the end of the paved road (won't take long), just park there - right by the barricades. There is a big open clearing along a creek. Walk that until you get to the big rock you'll see at the top of a hill and just walk up to that and a bit into the bush, and that's the flat face. You can also either continue walking the creek then bush wack to the base of the other parts, or there is a trail on the top of the flat face leading to the top of the other spots - it's a bit grown in though.
