Roche, glace et fleurdelisé


Roche, glace et fleurdelisé is a book about the fascinating history of rock climbing in Quebec.

From modest beginnings in Val-David in 1928 to the free ascent of La Zébrée(5.14) at the dawn of the new millennium, climbing has progressed dramatically in Quebec.

From the daring firsts to the Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie and on the steep slopes of Cap Trinité, including the development of sport climbing and mixed climbing, this unique anthology depicts the main currents, events and personalities who have marked the evolution of rock climbing in the province.

Like the pioneers, think outside the box and travel through 90 years of vertigo, overcoming and discovery.
