Description Suggest change

The area first had visits in the 70s, the approach followed by the vegetation and shallow cracks repelled most attempts.

More work has been done in the 80s by Gaetan Martineau and in the mid 90s Jean-Francois Beaulieu and Jean-Pierre Ouellet (Peewee) left a couple fixed line while exploring new routes.

In 2009, more ascents are recorded and repeated, this is where we are now, climbers have worked on cleaning, old and new routes, installing anchors and some fixed protection.

Some info on EQ

When entering the area, a fee of $12.50 (or 120$/season) must be payed cash or by credit card (they are now accepted).
However, it is recommended to pay online before departure to avoid the waiting line at the entrance of the ZEC. 


À l'accueil il faut payer un $12.50 (ou 120$/saison) comptant ou par carte bancaire/crédit. Elles sont maintenant acceptées.
Il est néanmoins conseillé de payer en ligne avant le départ afin de s'éviter la file d'attente à l'entrée de la ZEC.
