One of Canada's premiere winter climbing areas. Many high-quality lines.
From Duluth take Hwy 61 north across the US border. Continue on 61 into Thunder Bay. From Thunder Bay, take Hwy 11 into Nipigon (motels, food, beer). To get to the climbs from Nipigon, continue on Hwy 11 for about 36 miles until you reach Trans-Canada Pipeline Station on the left. At that point, the prominent Glace Eclatante will be visible ahead. You're there.
