Beating the Heat in Quebec

There is light at the end of the tunnel. I am in the final semester of nursing school, and looking forward to slowly integrating my roles as an outdoor professional and as a medical professional. In the meantime I've taken a step back from guiding to pursue school and other activities.

I just returned from two trips to Quebec and wanted to share some of the images from these fabulous trips. Quebec is not really on the map for US climbers, but it should be. In my three trips there this year I've climbed nothing but quality rock and ice climbs. There are fewer climbers too, so the cliffs feel uncrowded.

The Saint-Alban region is quiet, pastoral and wooded

Lac Long has 100 routes in the 5.9-5.13 range

Kamouraska is a scenic and lovely spot.
