Pylone has re-opened! 

A great teaching cliff 30 minutes from downtown Quebec city!
But you now need to have a FQME acces montagne membership due to liability coverage.

Les longueurs suivantes sont plus faciles mais le départ de la seconde est assez engagé avec très peu de protections. Vieux relais et vieux rappels en place. Voie esthétique, propre et raide. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
