Paroi Éléphant

Some have heard of it, but few have had the opportunity to climb it. To this day, the Paroi Éléphant remains one of the Upper Laurentians best-preserved gems. This rock wall, facing due west, plunges directly into the deep waters of the Poisson Blanc reservoir, culminating in a magnificent view of the reservoir’s archipelago.
