Climbed at Lac du Poisson Blanc - Paroi Elephant last weekend (September 2017). Just a heads up the cliff is distinctly more than 30 m tall when the water level is low. You might get away with a 60 m rope at fuller conditions but given its a 4 hour canoe ride a 70 m rope would be well worth it. Two bolt glue-in anchors at the top for the routes on the obvious features.
