Ice Climbing in Northwest Ontario


Whether you’re a novice or an expert, there are hundreds of places for you to climb above it all in Northwestern Ontario. From Thunder Bay and Red Rock to Marathon and Orient Bay on Lake Nipigon, this is the ultimate ice-climbing country, where dozens of ice-clad routes reach heights of over 90 m (300 ft.) and the waterfalls freeze so thick that the ice can stay until June.
