Description Suggest change

Can be crowded with top ropers. Some fun climbing which is very close to Toronto. Routes of all difficulties.

There was a project this Spring (2019) completed that added many sport routes to Rattlesnake Point on both the east and west side. They are documented in the new guidebook "Ontario Climbing: Vol 1.4 Sport Climbing Guide to Rattlesnake Point" by Gus Alexandropoulos and Justin Dwyer.

Getting There Suggest change

Located on Appleby Line north of Burlington Ontario
