On the north shore of the Lac Boisseau is a sublime south facing little crag with several high quality sport climbs. The rock type found there is absolutely unique in the Laurentians and reminds one of sandstone.
The routes are relatively short, many are slightly overhanging, and the rest are vertical.
The cliff itself is on crown land and the trail is seemingly part of the Trans Canada Trail. For now, rock climbing is allowed but is not regulated.
It seems that the land has been bought by the municipality of La conception in 2011 with the plan of transforming it into a nature Park.

Puppet on a string. This route goes straight through the middle of the big roof. Huge jugs and heel hooks make it easier to climb than it looks. Crux is clipping the chains really. If it's been raining a lot, the slab just before the roof can be wet. It's possible to bail from mid anchor.Polichinelle is the name of a famous french marionette, who would lie to anyone that who would listen....[more] Browse More Classics in International
