Kama Bay, Lake Superior, Ice and Mixed Rock Climbing
Icebreaker Arete. Climbing near the top. 3/6/11.
For ice and mixed routes, Kama Bay offers a bit more bang for the buck than it's nearby neighbor, Orient Bay. More Solitude, more beauty, more adventure. There's a price to be paid of course. Approaches tend to be longer, less traveled, and more involved. And the west-facing cliffs (and ice) of the Kama Hills can be mighty cold until late winter, when it finally starts warming up.
Domtar 81 road, about 20km east of Nipigon on Hwy 17, is the main access for Kama Bay routes. Although you will likely see Getting Oriented, Kama Curtains, or Icebreakers well before you come to the Domtar road turnoff, keep an eye out for the sign. Be advised that Domtar road supports active logging operations, so always be on the lookout for logging vehicles and parek as far off the road as possible. If the road isn't plowed, your approach just got longer!

Climb the lower ice of Kama Bay Cakewalk for about 10m, step right onto a good ledge, then follow the crack that heads up from the right side of the ledge to the top. The route is somewhat sustained, but good stances can be found in a number of places. The crack is annoyingly flared, and is right-side-in for the most part which makes gear a bit tricky to place, because you have to lean to the the right to get a look at it. The gear was generally good, but was tedious to place because of the ice ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
