Rock climbing on Eagles Nest Rock wall
No opinions for Eagles Nest yet ... leave your opinion
Various bolted routes, lots of trad, and some spots to setup top rope. Some routes are mixed so be careful. Some of the 1st bolts are also quite high, stick clip might make you feel at ease.
From Ottawa, take highway 17 west, then turn left onto county highway 508 (Calabogie road). Follow the 508 past Calabogie and along the shore of Calabogie lake. Parking is just a big dirt shoulder. The bigger parking section is at 45°16'23.45"N 76°48'34.70"W You are looking for a sign that says Manitou Mountain Trail. Don't take the one that says "Eagles Nest", it takes longer and will take you to the top of the cliff. Once you're on Manitou Mountain Trail, it's marked in blue. You want to stay on it for all of a minute or two, then you'll see a fork; the path continues left, you want to go right into the bush. There will be a beaten path, and it should be marked occasionally. After a bit (15 minutes?) you can cut toward the cliff (towards your left). (Approach could use additional beta)
This might be private property, but climbing has been going on for years. Leave no trace.
Black fly season is atrocious. Be wary of poison ivy although it shouldn't be an issue. Approach is scrambling rocks, runners/shoes a must.
