About Mount Orford (Pic aux Corbeaux):

Located in the Parc du Mont Orford provincial park.
Serious Development here began in the 90s, and it is now one of Quebec's nicest sport climbing areas. It also has superb unclimbed lines that could be the future of hard sport climbing in Quebec.
This area doesn't have many routes under 5.10, and would not be an enjoyable destination if you can't climb at that level. It is now seeing development for routes in the hard 5.13 range, and can be a nice place to log some hard climbing on beautiful gneiss.
Nearest town or city: Magog, Sherbrooke
Directions: Take exit 115 on highway 10 between Sherbrooke and Montreal. Instead of going for the Parc du Mont Orford park entrance, turn left and look for the parking entrance to your right. The hike is about 20 mins long, and steep. Prepare to weep.
Latitude, Longitude: 45.29388, -72.22846
Access Issues: Access is likely restricted Early May-Late July because of peregrine falcon nesting, you should contact the park (1 800 665-6527) to check before heading out.
Camping: Pay
When to Climb: Autumn Summer Winter
Quantity of Climbs: Month
