Following some miss-communications between Jean Claude Néolet and Stéphane Lapierre and lack of available FA data, Jean-Claude renamed many routes in his guide and intended to correct them in a future revision, sadly he passed away before this meeting could happen.

I will try to enter the most accurate information I can, If you have anything to add or change, please message Luc.

Nice ice crag but not much easy routes. Everything is grade 4 to 6+.
Straight up ice and mixed lines around 10 to 50m high.
Raps are equipped by the Club Escalade Lanaudière

Access is pretty easy, 15 min from the road with snowshoes for the easier Mastigouche area.

Quelle est l'orientation de cette paroi?

What direction does this cliff face?

Mastigouche Left (Erablière) faces south-east, the center routes face easterly (some stay in the shadows) and the furthest right section faces north-east and only gets early morning sun.
