Looking to go climbing up here within the next few weekends. Many places in New England are starting to dry up, so I was wondering if anyone had any recent info on conditions at the cliffs. Also free van camping within the area. Thanks Apr 6, 2017

Paul Laperriere has published a beautiful guidebook entitled "Guide des parois Val David" this spring (Copyright 2015). The book includes color route illustrations, access maps for the whole park, and a ton of useful information about the Val David area. Consider supporting this work if you plan on visiting the area.

Mont King would be my choice. Try the Amphitheatre sector. Many routes are under large roofs and stay dry in rain. May 4, 2016

Quelqu'un aurait des suggestions pour des voies/parois qui demeurent sèches lors de la pluie? Merci

Anyone have any suggestions for routes/crags that stay dry during periods of rain? Thank you, May 1, 2016
