ACC Toronto Section input on the proposed Niagara Escarpment Plan
Climbers in Ontario should be aware that a revision to the Niagara Escarpment Plan is being developed by the government agencies with
oversight of the Escarpment lands. Certain changes to the plan have been proposed by the planners that could significantly impact
Ontario climbers access to traditional climbing areas, particularly those in designated Nature Preserves. One such area potentially at risk
is Lions Head.
