Le pilier de cristal

| 15 min

Le Pilier de cristal, c'est l'une des formations naturelles de glace qui s'édifient, l'hiver, sur les flancs de la chute Montmorency. Un couple d'alpinistes, muni des ultimes raffinements de la technique, s'y attaque à la verticale. Un film d'une grande beauté, un suspense vertigineux, sur une paroi richement sculptée qui est une merveille de la nature, dans un site touristique unique, à deux pas de la capitale du Québec.

Ice-climbing enthusiasts don’t use the same techniques as regular mountain climbers. Teachers and students will need at least one training session in class to prepare themselves before venturing outside and trying out an easily accessible surface. They will also need to be familiar with climbing terminology to communicate effectively, and learn basic safety rules to avoid accidents.
