Although barely visible from the road, this area boasts a large number of high-quality routes in a very small area. You can get a lot of climbing done in here!! Of course this means that you likely won't be alone, but you'll almost always be able to get on something.
Park about a mile past Glace Eclatante, the huge wall of ice up on the right side of the highway as you are traveling north. If possible, try to use a parking area (Scenic View Road) on the west side of the highway (the parking area is the GPS coordinate). In any case, make sure your vehicle is well off the highway! Get the shovel out if necessary, or be prepared for a ticket.

From here, roughly the top of the ice sheet, a traverse was made to the base of a thin, detached pillar (2 stubbies at base) and up this to the cave (two bolt belay with rope-threadable rappel hangers). The second pitch was tackled the second day by ascending the free-hang...[more] Browse More Classics in International
