Remote Quebec Big Wall’s Newest Line
Patrick Brouillard and Charles Lacroix climbed a new nine-pitch V 5.10+ C2+ north east of Quebec City. They called their 200- metre route Les Clandestins and it climbs the impressive Mont de l’équerre un Hautes Gorges de la Rivière Malbaie on Charlevoix. It’s where the famous ice climb Pomme d’or WI5 is. It was the first new route up the cliff in 40 years.
