Site is under the Parc Régional de Val-David Val-Morin MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Fairly sunny, the cliff practically faces south. Once you are on the rock you are exposed to the sun, below there are trees which almost always offer shade.

Areas from Left to Right:
Amphitheatre
Zébrée
Impériale
Le Mur (Above Impériale)
Traversée
Vallot
Staircase

Getting There 

Practically in the center of Mont king. Between amphitheatre and staircase, at an area where the rock is seep for 30 feet, followed by about 40 feet of slab and then a very steep 50 foot section.

The approach varies depending on where you enter the park, if you entered the park from the south east streets past the main entrance (chalet anne-pichet) the hike is about an easy 20-25 minutes. When you arrive there is a sign labelled "Imperiale".
