Description 

As you come into the parc, Mont de l'Ours is the first main cliff visible on the right side (east).
The cliff is a mix of cracks in the moderate range 5.5 - 5.9+
It faces the west so it's pretty useful for the limits of the rock climbing season.
All routes are trad with some glued bolted belay/rap stations.
Having 2 ropes is mandatory since a lot of the routes in the park can be 50m stretchers, there are no intermediate rap stations.
the main rap is going down La Directe's glue-ins, just be careful when pulling the rope on the last rap, there's a lot of slots, flakes and pockets to that may turn your evening into an epic getting your rope unstuck.

Getting There 

Drive and park at the welcome center, pay your daily fee, and hike out using the trail located just in the back of the building.
take direction Mont Lac des Cygnes and look for a trail on the left after 100m or so.
15 minute approach, the last stretch can be tricky early season, especially if the handrail rope is buried.
