Description 

For ice and mixed routes, Kama Bay offers a bit more bang for the buck than it's nearby neighbor, Orient Bay. More solitude, more beauty, more adventure. There's a price to be paid of course. Approaches tend to be longer, less traveled, and more involved. And the west-facing cliffs (and ice) of the Kama Hills can be mighty cold until late winter when it finally starts warming up.

Getting There 

Domtar 81 road, about 20km east of Nipigon on Hwy 17, is the main access for Kama Bay routes. Although you will likely see Getting Oriented, Kama Curtains, or Icebreakers well before you come to the Domtar road turnoff, try to keep an eye out for the sign. Be advised that Domtar road supports active logging operations, so always be on the lookout for logging vehicles and park as far off the road as possible.

Straightforward ice climbing leads to a large ice ledge at half height, and the beginning of the mixed climbing. Follow the obvious seams up the overhanging wall to gain the upper ice. The difficulty of the route will, I believe, vary from about M7 to M8+ with the volume of ice on the upper section. The gear is quite good although it may be strenuous to place ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
