Summary

An adventurous crag with many hard and long trad climbs.

Description

This is the crag you can see on the right of "chemin du lac supérieur" when driving towards the "Parc du Mont Tremblant". It is seperated into two different sections ("Petit Nixon" and "Grand Nixon".)

Information is hard to find on this area so please update!

Access issues

The Club Montagnards Laurentiens and the FQME are working to get a official access to this cliff, any access will put in jeopardy the work they are doing for all climbers.

IMPORTANT

The access as well as the crag are all on private property and the owner is not friendly towards climbers due to damage and people not following the rules. The access to this crag is thus very fragile. Many crags around the area have been closed off for this very reason.

Lets change that.

Be extremely respectful of anyone you cross. Do NOT camp. Do NOT make fires.

IMPORTANT

Approach

Parking lot: (46.2427018, -74.4857661)

To get to the "Grand Nixon": From the parking lot, walk north along the road for about 100m and turn right on the obvious trail (just before the road turns). Follow the trail straight until a "T" intersection. Going right there leads to the "Twin Towers sector" and left to the "Grand Nixon" sector. After the intersection, walk on the trail for around 50-100m and head right to an unmarked trail. Look for traces of human passage and you should eventually get to the base of the "Water Gate" sector.

To get to the "Petit Nixon": From the parking lot, walk north along the road for about 100m and turn right on the obvious trail (just before the road turns). At some point, you will see a trail branching left, take it. After walking for around 100m, head right into the woods. There is no trail from this point. Look for the cliffs. It shouldn't be any farther than 300-400m.
