Lion's Head

by Gus Alexandropoulos & Justin Dwyer

If It Bleeds We Can Kill It

With its spectacular views of Georgian Bay and immaculate limestone walls, Lion’s Head is truly the crown jewel of the Southern Ontario climbing scene. This massive cliff is home to many of the best and hardest sport routes in the province. Thanks to its northern location and proximity to Georgian Bay, climbing at Lion’s Head is viable even in the peak summer heat. While sport climbing is the main draw at this cliff, the area also has a surprising number of high-quality traditional climbs. It’s worth noting that a significant number of routes at this crag have hanging belays and can only be accessed by rappel; this is not a conventional easy-access sport crag and it’s definitely not a great first choice for climbers just venturing out from the gym. But with the proper skills, Lion’s Head is an exceptional climbing area that offers stunning climbing opportunities for anyone with an appropriate level of experience.
