Description

Makynen is the premier bouldering area near Sudbury. The area is split in two by the highway. Makynen East consists of an overhanging cliff band a few hundred m long, running parallel to Makynen Road. The rock is strangely solid rock for Sudbury. Makynen West is composed of more true boulders, again of high quality for Sudbury standards. For whatever geological reasons, the rock is generally high in little crystals content, which creates wicked friction for big open-handed slopey moves, but is also pretty brutal on skin for those with tips not ready for the abuse.

Getting There

It’s found about 20 minutes south of Sudbury on the Old Hwy 69 (now Estaire Road). Drive south from the four corners (Regent and Paris intersections), take the Estaire Road exit and head south for about 15 minutes until you come to Makynen Road, turn left and park. (It’s almost exactly 20 km south of the South End Canadian Tire.)
