Disclaimer: Climbing is dangerous. I am not responsible if you hurt yourself by using the information in this guide. To the best of my ability I have tried to make this a safe spot to climb, but not all circumstances can be avoided.
Brooks Landing is an awesome bouldering spot out in Dillon (30 minutes from downtown Parry Sound). Every route was cleaned 2019/04 and the area is ready to climb! If you need to clean any of the routes DO NOT USE a wire brush on small holds, as this makes the climbs harder than they need to be. There are not enough climbs here for a full day, but only 3.5 minutes away there are several boulder problems at Hobbits Ridge. https://ontarioadventurer.ca/hobbits-ridge/ 45 seconds away Eavestrough https://ontarioadventurer.ca/eavestrough/ has a few boulder problems. 7 minutes away Venison Valley has almost a dozen boulder problems.
Do NOT PARK IN THE GRAVEL AREA. There is tons of parking to the left.
Park just before the gravel spot and hike to the left of it until the end of the gravel spot. There is a narrow path and this is where the crown land starts. Keep walking back past the skeleton of a tipi tent. Keep heading west another 50 m and you’ll find Brooks Landing. Brooks Landing gets sun starting around 3:30 pm until sunset. It is 22 meters long and 3.5 meters tall at it’s highest point.
