In Canada, Thanksgiving is a time for climbers to celebrate and give thanks at their favourite crag.
In Quebec, Kamouraska is a popular mid-autumn gathering spot for many climbers. Kamouraska is a quartzite crag with a number of fun climbs above the St. Lawrence River.
Another mint pic from @certainly_not_me! This time from Kamouraska in Quebec! "The sky was clear and the sun was out by the time we hiked to the cliff. We ended up being the only group at the crag. Those days are magic. Here is my friend @gab.harton on the super classic Tintin au Tibet 5.9+." #grippedmagazine #escaladequebec #kamouraska
There are over 100 bolted routes and there will be crowds on weekends, but it’s worth the wait. The routes have blocks, pockets and sharp crimps.
Located three kilometres from the village of Saint-Andre-de-Kamourasaka on the south side of river, the crag is operated by the SEBKA, who also operates the camping.
Five years ago, Dom Caron, Luc G, Marty Theriault, Christian Hapgood and Fred Berube spent their Thanksgiving there. Watch below.
