  • Respect designated paths !
  • NCC Gatineau Park restrictions MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Notable amount of large boulders and faces ranging from 5.low to 5.13c.

    Some walls are closed by the NCC, please do not climb on them as the access issues are sensitive in the Park.

    The rock is quality granite and a lot of the routes in Western CWM are very aesthetic and pure despite the small area.

    Getting There 

    On the road leading to Down-Under, turn left on the road leading to Luskville falls.

    At the end of the parking lot, a trail lead into the woods. Follow the trail keeping left until you reach a field to your left. an Inuqchuk (whatever pyramid of rock thing) will mark the path (right) to the cliffs. a small metal map hung to a tree illustrates the cliffs position.

    This climb is awesome. A bit short, but definitely worth trying. It is graded a bit old-school (as with most climbs in gatineau park, beware of the ''+'')Start on broken ground and gain the base of the pink dihedral. Jam and stem up this until the corner crack dissipates into nothingness and you have to use face holds, maybe the arete out left if you so desire. Put in your last piece of gear before the crack disappears (0.5 WC helium size) climb up over it and commit to the reachy / dynamic crux...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
