Montage d'Argent (Silver Mountain) is a great Rock and Ice climbing spot. Is has been developed since 1990, the first climbs were done in early 1950 (some old pitons). It is the most important climbing area in the Laurentides for the pas few years. The overall climbing is about 5.10 and is full equipped with sport routes (+100) and trad routes (+100). Most of the climbs are well protected and has belay stations, making is affordable for most climbers. Classic routes are : Boeing S 5.9+, Arete des Urubus T 5.10+, Spooky S 5.10b, Rav 4 S 5.10a, M&M T 5.9, Coeur Vaillant T 5.10b, and lots more. Some nice Ice climbing in the winter also, Voie Du Bucheron 3+, Edelweiss 3+ and more.

more about the people and the place

After our first visit there last year (spring 2007), we immediately signed ourselves up for a season's pass, which is good for ice and rock. I fully appreciated the variety of climbs, the welcome we received from the people we met, and the natural surroundings, which seemed to be in good shape. I think the owners and staff have created a place that embodies the *spirit* of climbing at its best. I love the small scale of the place and the sense of community I experienced amongst the climbers. More on the climbing: the place offers trad, sport and top-rope; routes ranging from 5.1 to 5.12; a handful of 2 and 3 pitch routes; about 10 (or more) different climbing "sectors", most of which are within 10 minutes from camp. I think this place is a jewel - please only share it with people who you think will respect and love it too!
