Description 

Momentum is a good alpine route located on the left aspect of the "Acropole des draveurs".

Aim for the first dihedral on the right side of the slab. In there you will find a nice chimney then angle left just before a rusted 1/4" bolt to a small ledge where you build an anchor.

Climb the wide crack to the double crack system then a small ledge about 30 feet under the huge roofs.

From there you need to go around the roof and angle right to the top of the climb for 2 pitches.

Location 

Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie on The Acropole des Draveurs.

Protection 

Standard rack up to #4, #5 or #6 but I only carried a single #4.
No fixed anchors.
