A Day of Rock Climbing Near Montreal

Montreal, Canada

Experience hosted by Antoine

8 hours, Hosted in English and French

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!

Weather you've never rock climbed before or have some experience and want to climb outside during your stay in Montreal, this experience is for you!

You don't need to be an expert climber to book this experience, there are routes for everyone; from 5.5 (3) to 5.13 (8a). Even if you've only climbed in a gym, you'll have fun climbing outside for the first time in a safe and professional environment. Bring your rock climbing shoes if you have some but if not, I'll have a pair to lend you, along with all the necessary gear.

Depending on your level of experience, we can either stick to top roping or we can also do sport climbing (lead) as most routes are bolted.

The crag is about 40 minutes away from downtown Mtl. We'll meet in Montreal close to a metro station and we'll drive to the crag in my brand new hybrid car ;). We'll park right at the mountain and then there is a short 10-min hike to get to the rock. There's about 80 routes to choose from. I'll suggest the best routes for you.

I'll take care of the anchors and I'll belay

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 and Climbing Federation).

I love spending time in nature along with cool people from around the world. So I invite to come climb with me at a local crag!

Where you'll be

The crag is about a 40-minute drive from Montreal. It's in a small town called Rigaud. We'll park at the foot of the hills of a ski resort. Then, we'll hike 10 to 15 minutes to get to the cliff. Rigaud is a very nice climbing spot. It has many sections that each has many routes. There are difficulty levels for everyone and most routes are bolted. The crag is under the sun most of the day :). At the top, the view of the valley is very pretty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 19 reviews.

For my birthday, I decided to go on an adventure with my two sons, aged 16 and 12. Antoine kept the day to our speed (new) and was very encouraging, the cave was a beautiful touch to end the day. Highly recommend

This was a great experience ! I was in need of a day in the nature outside of Montréal and this was perfect. Challenging and rewarding and lots of fun. Antoine is very funny and easy to get along with.

We had a great day rock climbing with Antoine! It was fun and challenging with Antoine there to guide us every step of the way. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and encouraging. We will definitely be back to try some of the other routes! The crags at Mont Rigaud were beautiful and were a nice escape from the city. Thanks again for everything Antoine!

I would describe this as a "Goldilocks experience"--everything was just right. The crag was not too far from Montreal but definitely felt like being someplace else. The hike to the climbing site was just far enough. Antoine set up top ropes on a variety of routes that provided a variety of levels, and encouraged me try ones that were not too easy but not so challenging that I felt discouraged. I felt like I did the right number of climbs so that I felt satisfied, but didn't end up feeling like the "walking dead". And the next day I felt the perfect amount of soreness--my whole body reminded me of how much fun I had the day before! All in all, a wonderful experience! Thanks, Antoine.

What a great day out! Outdoor rock climbing was a welcome physical and mental challenge. As a novice outdoor rock climber, Antoine made it a really enjoyable experience and I’ll definitely do it again.

My daughter and I (with very different climbing skills) joined Antoine and one other guest for a day of top roping at nearby Riguard Mountain. The equipment provided was in very good condition and Antoine took us out for a fulfilling and satisfying day of climbing. He made sure to cater to everyone’s comfort levels and kept setting different ropes so that everyone had their fill of climbing challenges. He is a friendly and knowledgeable climber and I think anyone, experienced or not, would enjoy this day out of the city with Antoine. Highly recommended!
