Description 

The Mont Wright is right at the exit of Québec urban area. A 30 minutes car ride and a small, but hazardous approach trail (1.5km) will bring you to probably a nicer site then the Champlain, with a similar quality. The wall is half-way of the summit of Mt Wright so far enough to forget the city yet near enough to go during the week.

Mostly top-rope and you may style trad your way on some of the route but only few sport climb there. There is however a lot of easy route and so this is a great place to initiate your people or even for a family day.

Be sure to take your harness and a personal anchor (two would be even better on the trail to go to the top) with you when installing top-rope! The access to the top is really well done with steel cable and some ladder so it is secure but stay vigilant. The trail scared some of my friends, when accompanied me to the top. it's like a little Via Ferrata!

Une route d'environ 30 minutes de Québec (légèrement plus loin que le Lac-Beauport) va vous assurer une déconnection avec la vie urbaine. La petite marche d'approche de 1.5km est juste assez pour réchauffer vos muscle avant de vous attaquer à la paroi.

La plupart des voies sont en moulinette mais rien ne vous empêche d'essayer les voies en trad. Il n'y à par contre presque pas de voies équipé en sport. Beaucoup de voie facile et il y à même une paroi école. Très belle place pour essayer l'escalade extérieur une première fois ou passer une journée en famille à la forêt!

Assurez-vous de prendre votre harnais et votre vache (idéalement deux) pour installer les moulinettes. L'accès au sommet est installer avec des marches et câbles d'acier donc assez sécure mais vous devez être prudent. J'ai donné des sueurs froides à des amis seulement en leurs demandant de faire ce trajet avec moi! C'est comme une mini Via Ferrata

I'll leave the routes up for now, but I can't leave them up for long. Routes need to be uploaded complete enough to find and be aware of special protection issues. There's no "temporary area" on MP to leave info "in works". I'm very grateful for the additions but please complete the missing info quickly.
