Description

Big and round boulder close to a biking path in Gatineau Park. Top out is sketchy for most of the routes as the boulder is really tall, rounded, dirty on top and also the is brittle and of poor quality. Landing is good until you reach 3-4 meters in height.

Access is questionable, at best. This is not part of the escarpment, so one might argue it isn't covered by the closure -- but the current phrasing on the NCC website is to list only the sections of the park where climbing is open, and this is not listed.

Approach

The access is pretty easy. You walk around 8 minutes south on the Gatineau Park Pathway directly facing 139 Chemin de la Mine. It will be on your right after you go past the second huge electricity pole.
