A bit out of the way but worth the trip.
the climbs are located within the Mont Tremblant National Park, so membership or self-registration is mandatory.

Getting There 

Take Highway 15 N to Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, then Route 117 to exit 107 towards Saint-Faustin-Lac-Carré; continue towards Lac-Supérieur and follow the signs to the La Diable Registration Centre.
At the entrance to the park, the road seperates in two, when the road joins again, park on your right, if you reach the welcome center, you've missed the parking lot.
Self-register at the booth and don't worry if you don't have exact change ($8.50/person 17-01-21).
Pack up and follow the road into the park up to the Centennial Trail, just before the bridge over the Rouge.
After 600m look for a turn off heading up to the Via-Ferrata Service trail (medical sign on a post).(N46.26220° W74.50152°)
On the medical evacuation trail, during an uphill right handed turn (350m after leaving the Centennial trail, there's another trail heading left then uphill to the Noire Inconnue ampitheatre.
If you stay on the medical evacuation trail, you'll eventually reach La Noire.

Suit les infos de La Noire mais restes sur le cour d'eau et ensuite ca monte vers la droite passé une corde fixe et une des voie de via ferrata.
Le parking se trouve après les voies séparées (revient a une voie a contre sens)de l’entrée Chemin du lac supérieur.
Avec chance, quelqu'un a ouvert le chemin!
