NCC Gatineau Park restrictions MORE INFO >>>
Notable amount of large boulders and faces ranging from 5.low to 5.13c.
Some walls are closed by the NCC, please do not climb on them as the access issues are sensitive in the Park.
The rock is quality granite and a lot of the routes in Western CWM are very aesthetic and pure despite the small area.
On the road leading to Down-Under, turn left on the road leading to Luskville falls.
At the end of the parking lot, a trail lead into the woods. Follow the trail keeping left until you reach a field to your left. an Inuqchuk (whatever pyramid of rock thing) will mark the path (right) to the cliffs. a small metal map hung to a tree illustrates the cliffs position.
