Summary

Unique rock type for the region, wild pristine lake with no direct road access, so no boats on the lake. Very quiet spot.

Description

Sport crag. A lot of moderate to hard routes, very few easy routes. Ideal for the 5.10 climber, not so much for beginners. The routes are well equipped. Bring a stick clip, as some route have so pretty high first bolt!

Access issues

The area is owned by the municipality of La Conception. Climbing is permitted even though there isn't any official agreement yet.

Approach

Take the Alléluia Trail, cross the bridge, follow the edge of the lake, pass a few campsites, and keep walking untill you see a natural path to the wall. The wall is roughly 50 meter away from the lake, it is visible from the trail.

Where to stay

Don't camp on the parking. Camp at Montagne d'Argent's campsite, it's much nicer, there is water, toilets, shelters and fires.

There is also a variety of camping spot at the beginning of the lake and along the approach.

Ethic

Wear a helmet also to belay there is some loose rock, kids=helmet ALL the time at the cliff, bring a stick-clip, top-rope on your equipement, pick up your garbage, no fires at the crag, no chipping, no stupid/dangerous/crazy dogs... only cool ones!

History

View historical timeline

The crag was re-discovered in 2004 by Guy Parent after a long search with the few info available. Guy Parent, Charles Pechousek, Eric Paquet, Socrate Badeau and Emanuel Crevier were the main the openers of the " Golden age" of that development period. Later on, local climbers, like Jean-Dominique Saudan, opened a few lines.
