What you'll do

This climbing experience is offered by La Liberté Nord-Sud, a climbing school that operates in Montreal and the Laurentians. I will be your instructor!

Whether you've never climbed before or only climbed in a gym a few times, this is for you! First timers are welcome!

**If you're a climber and own a pair of climbing shoes, check out our more advanced experience: https://airbnb.ca/experiences/280522 **

The rock wall (the cliff) is located in Montreal, in the Jean-Drapeau Park which is located on Saint-Helene island (very easy to get to).

We'll meet directly at the rock wall. We'll go to the top together to set up the ropes. I'll teach you how to belay and we'll climb a lot! There are many routes to try, they vary in difficulty and style. This is a perfect spot for beginners and even people who have never climbed before.

Groups remain small (max. 6) so it's intimate and you'll have plenty of time to climb. I schedule 3 hours so you'll lots of time to climb.

I'll be there to greet you, to guide you through every step and to belay you. I'm a certified climbing instructor by the Quebec Mountain and Climbing Federation, so you can feel safe about this activity.

I work for La Liberté Nord-Sud, a climbing school that operates in the province of Quebec, Canada

I'm passionate about the outdoors and especially crazy about rock climbing (I'm a certified instructor with the Quebec Mountain Federation).

I love Montreal! I especially love the nature that surrounds the city (the Saint-Lawrence, the parks, the mountain). It's nice to find beauty, peace and quiet within the city.

I invite you to discover a new sport, to have fun and to enjoy nature. Come climb with me right here in Montreal!

Our instructor was Gabriel. He was absolutely fantastic! This was the first time my husband and I have climbed outside. Gabriel was very informative and helpful. He made us feel extemely safe and we had so much fun. I would highly reccomend this experience for anyone looking to learn about rock climbing - even if you are a beginner, this experience is perfect!

Antoine was a great guide for our day of climbing - quality equipment, good at helping us learn to climb safely and how to get through the challenging parts of the rock faces. It is a super location that can challenge novice to experienced climbers and accessible by Metro! Sounds like Antoine also leads climbs outside the city - we will do that next time!

We had a great experience with instructor Eric. He is very patient, knowledgeable, and thoughtful. We tried different routes from both sides of the rock. We have two people with zero experience of climbing in our group, but they both had a good time.

This rock climbing experience was amazing, it was my first time and the fact that it was on actual rocks with certified safety equipment made me feel very safe. The instructor was very professional, friendly and informative. He was very encouraging and made the activity very fun by providing various levels of challenge. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Montreal!
