Rock Climbing


Le Pylône et Le Champlain
Climbing prohibited
2013 07 16 / Ministère des Transports du Québec
For all the family, "Le Pylône" offers several ways at 13 meters with levels from 5.1 to 5.12+. One climbs "moulinette", on the anchorings fixed at the top. It is the perfect place to make initiation to the climbing. Located near Quebec City, 5 minutes from the bridges Pierre-Laporte and Pont de Québec. Parking nearby.

Le Champlain
Climbing prohibited
2013 07 16 / Ministère des Transports du Québec
This site is recognized by the climbing ones to be a place of high level practice. Some rises are done in "first of cord", the other ways are done in "moulinette" on anchorings. Small disadvantage with the site, the ground at the foot of the wall is muddy, however, the climbing ones installed plastic boxes there on which we can circulate easily. Located directly on the Champlain boulevard almost under the Pierre-Laporte bridge. Parking at 2 minutes on the Champlain boulevard.

Les Gorges de Saint-Alban

The "Gorges de Saint-Alban" is a splendid site for rock climbing, one can climb there in "moulinette". The rocks are in limestone layers and are still a little dirty. You will find there about fifty ways with levels from 5.5 to 5.12, a section for the beginner with levels from 5.5 to 5.7.
In winter, it is possible to make "dry tooling" there. Interesting for the climbing beginners and intermediate level. A good site for the teaching and the practice of operations on cord for speleology. Access to the site is reserved to the members of Fédération Québécoise de la Montagne et de l'Escalade (FQME).
On the site you can buy an annual membership card for 50$, or a day-pass for 10 $.
