DescriptionMontagne du Tranchant is clearly the most popular cliff in Lanaudière.
It's located on public lands managed by the city of St-Come, the Club d'Escalade de Lanaudière (CEL) and the FQME. The city is fairly open to climbers, they've created a parking lot, installed a dry toilet and clear out the snow from the lot for us ice-climbers. So please encourage the local economy to thank them!
Due to the high amount of climbers frequenting the area, always wear a helmet at the base and leave babies and dogs at home or very far from the cliff.
Don't go smashing developing ice, maybe it will fill in in a couple weeks.
-There's no garbage cans on the site so please pack it out.
-Please refrain from starting fires and camping on the neighbours lot.
Getting ThereThe cliff is located between the city of Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci and St-Comes in Lanaudière.
Jean-Claude Néolet discovered the cliff in 2003 and started putting up some routes, during the winter of 2004 the ice-climbing potential was also discovered. Following the publication of a regional guidebook in 2004 and the creation of the CEL in April 2005 the site gained even more popularity. In 2008-2009, mostly thanks to independent openers, the amount and range of routes ballooned to nearly 40 routes from 5.3 to 5.13.
