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 francophones pouvaient rajouter des descriptions dans la langue de Molière (version simple;) de secteurs et de voies. Vous avez simplement à cocher le crayon bleu à coté des textes.
