Climbing in this area is closed.



A short, mostly overhanging crag with hard sport routes.

Access issues inherited from Mont Nixon

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.


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.



To get to the "Water Gate" ": 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 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.


This cliff doesn't have any sub-areas or routes yet!
