The cliff is located on the east shore of Lac Blanc and faces south west. As such it receives early morning shade and then all day sun. The positioning above the lac allows for a slight breeze which can help cut the heat during the warm summer temperatures. Supposedly this is a good crag to avoid crowds.
Due to issues with a local landowner, the first ascents have not been publicized.
From Montreal, take the 25 Nord until it turns into 125 N. Take 125 to Notre Dame de la Merci and then take 347 Sud for 8 km until an intersection. Follow 347 Sud for a bit less than 2 km until an obvious sign for parking (stationement) on the left.
The approach trail begins on the west end of the parking lot (look for the sign to Lac Blanc). Follow the trail over a bridge and take a left (right goes to Lac Castor). The trail is approximately 2 km and should take about 15-20 minutes.

Weave your way through the hard to read face for a few meters and a couple bolts then climb easier terrain to the fixed anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in International
