You no longer need a permit to climb la Pomme d'Or, but do call ahead to alert the staff of your plans!
As of 2018, the fee to enter the park is $8.50 per day per person. Please contact the park adminisatration for overnight camping fees.
Every winter, skilled climbers take on the Pomme dOr, a spectacular and perilous rock face along Rivière Malbaie. Until this year, a lengthy 30Km ski access was required to reach the base of the route, but as of 2018, the road is now open during winter all the way to the dam at the foot of l'Acropole des Draveurs, a mere 5 Km from La Pomme d'Or! This means that under good conditions, a fast team of experienced ice climbers can leave Quebec city at 3.30 AM and finish the route before dark!
We strongly recommend bringing a satellite telephone or a SPOT-type emergency message device. There is no emergency telephone on the site in the winter and the cell phone network does not serve the parks territory. The only place you will get a phone signal is at the very top of the route.
you can take the 138 west from La Malbaie then take Rue Principale in Saint-Aime-des-Lacs.
Continue on Rue Principale up to the first gate near Relais des Hautes-Gorges.
If the first gate is open you can keep driving to the second gate 18 km further.
From there on, you better have brought your skis and a sled!
