Comments: !!!DONT CLIMB HERE!!!

I was part of the party which witnessed the rockfall event of November 4th 2017 at Lac Boisseau. I had walked down the trail just passed the Main Wall towards Polichinelle with my partner, when behind us boulders as large as cars were raging down. Fortunately, we were all safe.

Did both pitches in one long pitch. While retrieving my rope after the first rappel from the top, a rock the size of my head ram down and missed me and climbers at the bottom by a few feet.

Be careful, this second pitch is dirty and hasn't seen much traffic. I suggest adding a sling to a big tree before engaging the last bump of the summit, little run out if not and the rope does pull you down.

Climb safely!

Comments: Update from last fall!

On the second pitch, a nice jug hold broke while performing the right traverse to clear the roof. This renders a harder route, adding a higher sense of exposure!

Proposed new Grade: 5.10a/b
