Description Suggest change

One of Ontario's newer crags, first found by local climbers then developed largely by Gus Alexandropoulos and other contributors. Many moderate routes and what sometimes feels like lenient grading, likely due to the fact that most FA's were done by a single person.  

The swamp contains many of Ontario's future classics, from moderate to hard.
South facing cliff with sun and shade, lots of tree cover.
Shade in crevices.

Getting There Suggest change

Park at Kolapore lot on Grey Road 2, follow trail towards cliffs and a now obvious side trail to bottom on cliff.
