Kama Bay, Lake Superior (Ice)
View from the top of "Icebreakers" Kama ...
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.
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. If the road isn't plowed, your approach just got longer!

On the first ascent, the pillar wasn't completely formed so it was climbed up the right side and gear was more difficult. Later in the season the best line was was steep, sustained climbing right up the front on great ...[more] Browse More Classics in International
