Pomme D’Or and Quebec Ice Climbing

Anne Gilbert Chase and Majka Burhardt descending Pomme D’Or in windy and white out conditions. The previous day we had climbed up La Voutre and familiarized ourselves with the descent knowing it could be a classic NE storm.

From the top of Pomme D’Or we could hear the wind like a freight train barrelling down river. It was much more intense on the river bottom then high up on the wall.

Images from a quick 5 day trip to Quebec Canada, February 2019. We managed to sneak in Pomme d’Or and La Voutre in a three day period. Both routes offer superb climbing, Pomme being pretty much all ice.
