Cap trinité as seen on the boat aproach.


A huge area boasting a great diversity of climbing styles, rock types, and commitment levels---on both rock and ice. The "French" culture adds to the exotic nature of a climbing trip here.

Getting There 

Drive or fly. Major carriers go to Montreal and Quebec City.

Access and Clubs 

Many cliffs are under the liability insurance of the FQME
Climbers on the protected sites need to have:
-FQME 'Accès Montagne' membership ($55)
-For members of the Alpine Club of Canada an FQME 'Accès Montagne' upgrade ($30)
-Or purchasing a $10 day pass online on $15 at the site if an administrator is present.

This money is used to pay the liability insurance for landowners regardless if they are private citizens, municipal or provincial.
The maintenance of cliffs and their access, replacing of fixed protection.

All of these now include disability and emergency transport.

The FQME also has under its umbrella multiple regional clubs which are listed under each areas.

Quebec is a province with unbelievable climbing potential that is not even close to being realized yet. I would say probably it is only 25% of its potential for new routes if that. People need to start coming up here and see for themselves.

Viva la Quebec!
