Looking up at "The Hand" in early season...


The Eastern Townships (Cantons de l'Est) region is an area full of mountains and valleys and home to extremely picturesque villages.

In the Montérégie you'll find a couple hills with plenty of potential, if it was legal to climb there...

Rock Climbing

Following a dispute between a guiding company and McGill which administers the Gault Nature Reserve, the Cliff has been closed to all climbing since the mid 90's.

In many seasons you can climb behind this formation to clear the final pitch.P1: Climb the short pitch to the ledge on the right ~30m and belay on a tree that is slung for rappel. (In early season you may be climbing more rock than Ice).(alternate: a ledge 50 feet up has 2 Glue-ins located about 25' to the left on the ledge - may be useful if the route is crowded)....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
