All three crags in the guide are approached from the top, which greatly simplifies setting up top-ropes, and the easy access to the base (Rattlesnake Point has a metal staircase) eliminates the need for rappelling and other more advanced climbing skills. These are primarily south facing cliffs with a relatively open base, so they dry quickly after rain and are ideal for early season climbing.

This is the latest addition to the Ontario Rakkup guide series that includes other popular climbing areas like Mount Nemo, The Swamp, Old Baldy, Metcalfe Rock, Devil’s Glen and Lion’s Head.
