Description

AKA Ile-aux-Raisins

Feel strong? Come meet your match.
The rock isn't great but it's steep! The climbs are located in the limestone canyon formed by the Jacques-Cartier River.
Warm temps can cause the pillars to collapse. There's also been a surge in the river's level caused by an ice dam downstream, please stay vigilant!

Like any ice climbing venues, don't forget your snowshoes! You might be lucky and find a packed trail but don't plan on it.

Please be aware a few packs have been lost when the dam further upstream had opened up, causing the water level to rise quickly. Water level may also be affected by ice blockages.

Getting There

-WARNING-
Be aware that you cannot leave your car on the side of the road at night or when there is low visibility (heavy snow/rain).
If possible leave a visible note saying you're climbing and when you'll return.
---
La ville ne tolère pas les véhicules stationnés sur les abords de rue la nuit ou lorsque la visibilité est réduite. Si possible, laissez une note indiquant que vous grimpez et l'heure de votre retour.
