What you'll do

This climbing experience is offered by La Liberté Nord-Sud, a climbing school that operates in Montreal and the Laurentians. I will be your instructor!

Whether you've never climbed before or only climbed in a gym a few times, this is for you! First timers are welcome!

**If you're a climber and own a pair of climbing shoes, check out our more advanced experience: https://airbnb.ca/experiences/280522 **

The rock wall (the cliff) is located in Montreal, in the Jean-Drapeau Park which is located on Saint-Helene island (very easy to get to).

We'll meet directly at the rock wall. We'll go to the top together to set up the ropes. I'll teach you how to belay and we'll climb a lot! There are many routes to try, they vary in difficulty and style. This is a perfect spot for beginners and even people who have never climbed before.

Groups remain small (max. 6) so it's intimate and you'll have plenty of time to climb. I schedule 3 hours so you'll lots of time to climb.

I'll be there to greet you, to guide you through every step and to belay you. I'm a certified climbing instructor by the Quebec Mountain and Climbing Federation, so you can feel safe about this activity.

I work for La Liberté Nord-Sud, a climbing school that operates in the province of Quebec, Canada

I'm passionate about the outdoors and especially crazy about rock climbing (I'm a certified instructor with the Quebec Mountain Federation).

I love Montreal! I especially love the nature that surrounds the city (the Saint-Lawrence, the parks, the mountain). It's nice to find beauty, peace and quiet within the city.

I invite you to discover a new sport, to have fun and to enjoy nature. Come climb with me right here in Montreal!

This rock climbing experience was amazing, it was my first time and the fact that it was on actual rocks with certified safety equipment made me feel very safe. The instructor was very professional, friendly and informative. He was very encouraging and made the activity very fun by providing various levels of challenge. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Montreal!

Antoine is super knowledgeable about outdoor rock climbing. He also has pleasant personality to make the class fun. He explained everything well and always put safety first. I really appreciate him setting up an extra problem for me and explained me a couple techniques. It’s a great experience if you are new to outdoor climbing. Antoine adapted it very well to my level.

I actually ended up doing the full day experience out in Mont Rigaud which was an awesome experience. As an experienced climber but never climbed outdoors, this was a great place to try out, Antoine was a great host suggesting great routes to climb and encouraging. I would definitely recommend this experience.

Fun rock climbing that didn’t leave beginners behind but had challenging courses for those beyond. He really knows his knots and is extremely helpful. Also great view of the sunset over the city!!!
