description

Two agglomerations of pure granite boulders.

approach

Off road Qc-116, take rue Fortier until it becomes Chemin Ozias-Leduc. To your left is rue Cardinal. The boulders are at the end of the road.

Parking on residential streets requires a permit. Rue Montcalm does not. From that street it's a 10 minutes walk to the boulders.

history

Discovered the boulders thanks to someone named Jimi Spire from that website. https://climbingaway.fr/en/climbing-areas/mont-saint-hilaire-site-cardinal
