Vid: Montmorency Falls

Montmorency Falls Park offers one of the most popular and fun ice climbs in eastern Canada.

The rock around the falls mark the eastern end of the Canadian Shield which formed one-billion years ago. The 120-metre wall of ice is only a 10-minute drive from Quebec City and an easy five-minute approach.

There are a number of routes up the south-east facing wall. Climbers first started swinging tools at Montmorency in 1970 with the first ascent of L’Entonner WI3 110 metres.
