Rock climbing on Lily Pond Rock wall

No opinions for Lily Pond yet ... leave your opinion

This is the part of southeast Manitoba immediately adjacent to the Ontario/Manitoba border. It is a transition between the prairies and the "full-blown" Canadian Shield landscape found further east in northwest Ontario and while there is lots of rock here, much of it is of relatively poor quality. Its most attractive feature is its proximity to Winnipeg. Despite its rather poor rock, The Lily Pond sees a fair amount of climbing traffic because it is the closest real cliff to Winnipeg. It offers beginning climbers a wide selection of moderate routes and more advanced climbers enjoy the challenging top-roped problems found on the steep wall between Dihedral and The Nose. First ascents of most routes are unknown.

This cliff is located in Whiteshell Provincial Park on the north shoulder of highway #44 just west of Caddy Lake. Park at the pullout by the interpretive sign 300m east of the cliff or on the shoulder at the cliff(careful - it's narrow). Just east of the Exit Route a trail leads to the top of the cliff.
