Gripped - - NEWS -

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.
