Almost all of Ontario is experiencing cold temperatures and good ice-making conditions. The province is big and in some winters there are ice climbs formed at nearly all corners, from the northwest to the southeast.
So far in fall 2021, a lot of ice has formed north of Lake Huron, and around the shores of Lake Superior. One of Ontario’s must-visit areas is Orient Bay, where a dozen classic one- and two-pitch ice routes have been formed for a few weeks.
Ice is also forming around Sudbury and North Bay, but many of the well-known climbs are still in thin early-season conditions. The same goes for popular climbs around Bancroft and Ottawa. With any luck, there will be a few lines formed by the holidays.
