Climbing Fest Reaches New Heights

The 2nd annual Beaver Valley Climbing Festival was a huge success. Packed full of clinics, vendors, competitions, entertainment, yoga, massage, music and tasty food, the day was an opportunity for the community to come together to celebrate rock climbing in the Beaver Valley, Ontario. The event also raised $6000 for the Ontario Access Coalition. These proceeds will go to local access initiatives, and possibly a parking lot for Devils Glen.

With the climbing portion held at the iconic Metcalfe Rock, this amazing event was made possible by the help of many sponsors. We urge you to support the companies and organizations that support sustainable and responsible Ontario rock climbing.

Leslie Timms of On The Rocks Climbing and Jennie Elmslie of Free Spirit Tours were the masterminds behind the festival and have created the signature event for the burgeoning Ontario climbing scene.
