Parc Jean-Drapeau
Rock climbing wall

Rock climbing wall

Parc Jean-Drapeau's rock climbing wall is a little-known and unique place in Montréal where you can do rock climbing outdoors. Climbers can do bouldering or top-rope climbing, as well practise movements and techniques such as positioning your hands and feet, traversing , rappelling, etc.

The reddish brown, 100-metre long and 8-to-12 metre high rock climbing wall is the result of previous excavations that have occurred and for which the stones have been used as construction material for the various buildings at the Parc (Lévis Tower, Aquatic Complex, Hélène de Champlain, etc.).

To enhance your safety, it is recommended you have someone with you and bring along a crash pad. The rock climbing wall facility is exclusively managed by the Fédération québécoise de la montagne et de l'escalade (FQME).

Technical specifications

  • Site classification: naturally built wall
  • Type of climbing: top-rope climbing and bouldering
  • Direction: West and North
  • Approach: none
    (the P13 parking lot is situated at the foot of the wall and the path to get to the top is to the left of it)
  • Facilities:
    • Picnic table
    • Top-rope climbing anchors
