Orient Bay Rock Climbing

Orient Bay Rock Climbing

Long recognized for its world-class ice and mixed routes, recent years have seen Orient Bay’s development into one of Ontario’s premier crags. Endless new route opportunities await first ascensionists, be it sport or multi-pitch trad. The area is already home to dozens of 4-star routes. The Tajmahwall hosts 3-pitch cracks and long sport climbs, while a concentration of shorter sport lines is found in Da Projects. Enormous potential exists here for new routes, as well as in the Schoolhouse, Mt.Olympus and numerous other areas. Local climbers have worked hard to develop the area, even establishing a full trail network and campsites.
