Ice climbing on Hamilton Conservation Authority lands
In November 2015, along with One Axe Pursuits and the Alpine Club of Canada, the OAC engaged in discussions with the Hamilton Conservation Authority about the future of ice climbing and risk management on their properties. For the winter season ending in March 2016, group ice climbing will be allowed for One Axe Pursuits and and Alpine Club of Canada members. The OAC is continuing to work towards the HCA properties being enjoyed by more recreational climbers and at more locations. The program will be reviewed on an ongoing basis.
