Along the coast of Georgian Bay are many amazing areas, but perhaps the one of most interest to climbers is the Bruce Peninsula. There are dozens of cliffs, such as those found at Lion’s Head and White Bluffs. The best bouldering on the Bruce Peninsula can no doubt be found at Half Way Log Dump. The beach-side blocs have long attracted climbers and while there are more in the forest, they are off limits because of endangered foliage such as the Lady’s Slipper, Lakeside Daisy, Dwarf Lake Iris, Hill's Thistle, Provancher's Philadelphia Fleabane and Ohio Goldenrod.
Many of the problems climb above the water and a fall can result i n a soaking, but the cold water is a nice relief on a hot day. The stone is featured limestone that has been beaten down by the weather. It is solid and often smooth from the water. There are few easy problems, with most coming in from V3 to V7, and many are named after the local fauna and f lora.
Like many Ontario climbing areas, access is always an issue so follow the rules of the park and those of the Ontario Climbing Association. There is a day fee, which is cheaper than climbing in a gym for the day. This is one of the most stunning places in Canada to spend your day bouldering.
