The Ontario Alliance of Climbers has issued a notice to climbers to not light fires at Ontario crags. See below for more.

“Please DO NOT BUILD FIRES at our crags. Warmer weather has arrived, and people are heading outside again. Normally this would be cause for celebration. However, on the weekend both Mount Nemo and Devil’s Glen were the site of unacceptable behaviour by climbers.

“It is NEVER acceptable to create a fire at any of our climbing areas. This behaviour can lead to our climbing areas being closed. If you see incidents like this, please kindly and respectfully stand up and say something. Don’t let poor behaviour jeopardize your access to our beautiful areas. Remember, access to our climbing areas is a privilege, not a right.”

Please DO NOT BUILD FIRES at our crags .  Warmer weather has arrived, and people are heading outside again. Normally this would be cause for celebration. However, on the weekend both Mount Nemo and Devil's Glen were the site of unacceptable behaviour by climbers. • It is NEVER acceptable to create a fire at any of our climbing areas. This behaviour can lead to our climbing areas being closed. If you see incidents like this, please kindly and respectfully stand up and say something. Don't let poor behaviour jeopardize your access to our beautiful areas. Remember, access to our climbing areas is a privilege, not a right. • With the start of the climbing season, it's important that we all take a moment to refresh ourselves on the principles of Leave No Trace, and act as mentors to those who may not be aware of proper outdoor etiquette. You can read up on the principles of LNT at http://www.leavenotrace.ca/principles, and learn about climbing-specific behaviour at http://www.rockrespect.ca/ . #ontario #climbing #leavenotrace #rockrespect 🎨 Thank you @michyllica for helping us spread this message.
