Rock climbing wall Regulations

Conditions for usage

Parc Jean-Drapeau's rock climbing wall is managed in collaboration with the Fédération québécoise de la montagne et de l'escalade (FQME). Use of the climbing wall is based on the following conditions:

  • You must be a member of the FQME or have a valid daily membership;
  • You must obey the FQME's safety regulations in compliance with the sports safety law;
  • You must preserve the environment and respect other users, which means no removing of blocks or installing permanent anchors without the approval of the FQME, the regional club or the site's local committee;
  • You must be an organizational member of the FQME or comply with the conditions stipulated by the FQME and its partners to be allowed to oversee a climbing activity on this site.

Accepting the risks

Climbing and activities that involve heights and a natural setting entail risks which can cause material or other losses, injuries or death. By going on to the site, you accept the inherent risks and responsibilities that may occur while you are conducting your activities.

Any assistance or advice you receive does not personally exempt you from assessing the potential risks to which you could be exposed. You are responsible for your actions and decisions, including the use of individual protective equipment.

Before venturing on to the wall, you need to realize that climbing and activities which involve heights and a natural setting are done on rough terrain, in remote, limited-access areas. If you are in need, it may happen that communication, rescue operations and medical assistance that have been set up and administrated might take longer than usual to be carried out. For any emergency, please immediately contact the Parc's security department at 514 872-9999.

For your safety, please make sure you...

  • Select a route that is compatible with your technical ability;
  • Obtain proper knowledge by taking a course given by a qualified person;
  • Have safe equipment;
  • Are in good health and in good physical and psychological condition;
  • Have favourable weather conditions.
