I would likely avoid this place on long weekends. Was there on labour day weekend and it was a zoo and a shit show. Showed up at the cliffs at about 10 and it was already full to the brim; gang top ropes, people top roping on bolts and a single draw, packs lying everywhere across the walking path, and literally nothing below 5.10 available to climb. We were going to climb three days: got 4 climbs in on the first day and none on the second, so simply left early and went to the gym ... Sep 25, 2016

"Kamou" for the intimate is a great place! Sooo much concentration of classic sports routes in all grades you fingertip will cry from joy...and pain, if there is one crag that is an "incontournable" in Quebec; That's the one! Of course all the disadvantages comes with it, it's crowded and people don't necessarily have high ethics if probably coming from the "G" generation .... read Gym. It's a must go, but aim for the weekdays if possible.

"Kamou" pour les intimes est un super endroit! Il y a une concentration de voies sportives classiques à tout les niveaux de difficulté, vos bouts de doigts vont crier de joie ... et de douleur! S'il y a une falaise qui est «incontournable» au Québec, c'est celle là! Bien sûr, tous les inconvénient viennent avec, il y a beaucoup de monde et les gens n'ont pas forcément une éthique correcte venant probablement de la génération "G" .... pour Gym. C'est un must, mais allez-y les jours de la semaine si possible. Oct 8, 2017
