Chutes Mont Morency is amazing in Quebec city (small detour). Don't know what kind of shape it would be in that time of year. They post their ice conditions somewhere online.
Pont Rouge wouldn't be very good I don't think because the river has to freez over to access most of the climbs.

TO to Cap Chat (just before Chic Choc park) is 1200 and Cap Chat to Halifax is 800km so a 200km to 400km detour will bring you to some north facing cliffs with tons of world class routes. A few of the hard ones won't be in but i'm sure you can find some nice fat routes.

Did you get on any of the mixed stuff or just do ice at Pont Rouge?Fred wrote: The crappy thing about Pont Rouge is the routes are insanely difficult (in my opinion). Unless you are a World Cup climber it's a tough playground. Chute Momo is a much better place to visit I think... but then again I'm a weak ice climber. hehe
