Description 

Located in the Parc du Mont Orford. Development began in the 90s, and has now become a place to push the limits of Quebec climbing. Most of the climbing is in the 5.9 to 5.13. there are a few 5.6 suitable for climbers still new to the sport, but are not as common as the harder routes. There is plenty of potential for this location to produce some future hard sport lines for this area. on the hike up to the climb there is also some nice bouldering before you hit the main wall.

The gneiss the climbs are made of is solid, but can be rather sharp when dealing with crimps. The rock also can be rather wet in places so be sure to bring chalk when you go.


when you arrive at the parking lot where there is a self serve parking/climbing permit with a small fee.

Start on the top of the left-most boulder pile of the small wall (petit mur), just to the right of a small birch tree. Easy climbing for the first three bolts. The crux begins heading to the fourth bolt until you clip and clear it to get onto the large ledge. Once on this obvious and comfortable ledge, follow the right handed bolt line to the top anchor chains....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
