Description

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.

Quebec is a great place to get away, Climbing has been an institution in this province since the 40s. You'll be amazed at the quantity, quality and potential of routes. Mountainproject only lists a tiny fragment of the existing climbs, stay tuned, more gets added every weeks.

Je serrais ravi si des Francais étaient capable de rajouter des versions francaises aux descriptions des secteurs et des voies. juste a cocher le crayon bleu a coté des textes.

Popular areas on MountainProject that need a bit of love (route additions) from the community:
Lac Larouche
Kanata
Les Grand Jardins

Getting There

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