BETA PHOTO: Topo Le Dôme
The dome being just outside the SEPAQ, you are not required to purchase a day permit to climb it.
All routes require trad gear and are mostly multi-pitch up to 200m long.
The left and center side of the cliff is mostly a slab affair while the right end (les Toits) has quite a few spicy routes.
Bring double 60m ropes, many belay/raps are a stretch using two 50m ropes. Guidebooks:

Look for a parking lot
on the right side of the road passed the SEPAQ welcome centre Mont-du-Lac-des-Cignes
Park and head up the trail in the centre of the lot towards the Eudore hut
then take a left towards the Dome hut
which are both maintained by Traversée de Charlevoix
, you'll find the trail heading to the cliff after you've passed the back of the hut.
If I remember well, the trail lands you in the middle of the centre section around the start of Diagonale.
The leftmost routes, L'Initiation and Renaissance, have their own trail
from the road a few meters passed the parking lot and require walking off climbers left
