Sad to pass along this news... The main climbing area at Edelweiss is currently closed to climbers. The owner, who has always been very kind to climbers, allowing us to climb on his property for over 30 years, has put the land up for sale. So for the time being, he would prefer that climbers not use the land. Private property signs have been posted. Please respect the closure.

There is the possibility climbers could purchase the land. This would be the best way to guarantee continued access to some of the best ice and mixed climbing near Ottawa. More info can be found in the Access forum on the French website www.escaladequebec.com

Hey Mike,

Mon francais ce n'est pas tres bien so navigating http://www.escaladequebec.com/ est similar d'une mauvaise reve.....

Any idea what the owner is asking for in terms of price? And where his property line ends? I've noticed that all along the escarpment on Chemin de la Montagne the land is for sale...

It would be sad to loose that area... A nice crag for the outouais
