Highway 15 north, to St-Sauveur then take 364 west towards the city of weir (montcalm).
Drive the 364 for aprox 35km till you road takes you straight to a restaurant called Caza Saralie.
Turn around and go straight up a road that you did not see as you zoomed by.
Follow this till you see the massive Sat dishes of Teleglobe, and park.
Hopefully the new Laurentian guidebook will include Weir!
Poison Ivy - Aids to identification
The following four characteristics are sufficient to identify poison ivy in most situations:
(a) clusters of three leaflets
(b) alternate leaf arrangement
(c) lack of thorns, and
(d) each group of three leaflets grows on its own stem, which connects to the main vine.
The appearance of poison ivy can vary greatly between environments, and even within a single area. Identification by experienced people is often made difficult by leaf damage, the plant's leafless condition during winter, and unusual growth forms due to environmental or genetic factors.
Various mnemonic rhymes describe the characteristic appearance of poison ivy:
"Leaflets three; let it be" is the best known and most useful cautionary rhyme. It applies to poison oak, as well as to poison ivy, but other, non-harmful plants have similar leaves
"Hairy vine, no friend of mine. "
"Berries white, run in fright" and "Berries white, danger in sight. "

An overhanging hand/fist crack that is mostly the finest trad climb at Weir. To access it, you either have to climb 3D (5.12a) or P1 (5.9) of Black & White (5.10+). If you decide to climb P1 of Black & White, you have to re-establish yourself on a ledge above and left of the anchor. In both cases, I recommend to build a gear belay on the ledge and not using the anchor of 3D, which is kind of too high/uncomfortable.Pitch 1: Traverse left and head for the bolt, then clip it.
