Old Baldy

by Gus Alexandropoulos & Justin Dwyer

If It Bleeds We Can Kill It

With its impeccable white walls and dramatic position overlooking the Beaver Valley, Old Baldy is one of Ontario's top sport climbing areas. The sun-drenched nature of the majority of the cliff combined with the relatively open base ensures that Old Baldy is great option both early and late in the season. In warmer weather, the Black Forest area offers some much-appreciated relief from the sun's scorching rays. While sport climbing is the crag's main draw, there are some notable trad climbing opportunities scattered across the cliff. Toss in a short and relatively easy approach, and it becomes apparent why Old Baldy is such a popular cliff.
