Overview

The classic route of the Morne!

Pitch 1 is short (about 20m), start right of a big roof and climb a slaby ramp under a big roof. Make your belay off a big cedar.

Pitch 2 is also short (15m), and is a traverse. Go to your left and follow the horirontal crack system until you turn the corner (see photo). Also do your belay off the big cedar.

Pitch 3 (30m) offers some amazing face climbing. From your belay station, go left for about 4m, then straight up to the top. The exit is quite slaby without protection. You can go around this section by traversing right, then back to the left for the bolted belay station.

One long 60m rappel will bring you back to the bottom.
