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.


Excellent sites ranging from easy 5.4 to 5.13. Lots of rock-climbing and world famous ice (found on Quebec ice area).
Quebec city is surrounded by crags and if you go a bit further, you'll find full blown alpine playgrounds.
