Routes range from 15m to 120m in length and from 5.2 to 5.12b in difficulty. Most routes have fixed rappel/belay bolted anchors. Rappelling is the best way to descend.
The rock is sharp and routes can be dirty due to lack of traffic. There are some loose blocks so wear a helmet and keep away from the base of the cliff when people are climbing above.
Camping on platforms is possible at the top.
A guidebook (Guide d'escalade du Grand Morne) is available the Atmosphere in Sherbrooke or at the hut in the parking when somebody is there.
From the parking lot, you can take the small trail that starts behind the information kiosk to get to the left end of the cliff.
The trail to the right end is trickier to find: take the large gravel road for 5 to 10 minutes, then find a small path on your left indicated by a cairn following a ledge. If you don't get to over a gully on a wooden bridge, you're not on the trail! Be careful, the bridge is very slippery when wet.
