Description

It's basically a face route with imaginary holds.
Be careful of big block near the anchor, it moves but wont come out, so don't place pro around it or leave your hand under it if you grab the top!

Location

Third line of bolts on the left face of the needle.

Protection

MIXED, 4 bolts & a couple small-medium pieces.

I think this route is also sandbagged... Anyway, I find the grading at val D to generally be harder than other places I've been to. May 22, 2014

Like many of the older routes here, these ratings are the same you'll find in the Adirondacks, New Hampshire, Gunks, Bugaboos, Yosemite, Joshua Tree, etc.

Be careful if you climb at Montagne d'Argent, cause the ratings there are pretty soft, unless you get on anything over 5.11 where stuff levels off.
I've seen so many Quebec climbers get their ass kicked when they start travelling around, ALWAYS start way below your rated abilities when discovering new areas so you can figure out if the rating is soft or sandbag. May 22, 2014
