At 84 metres, Quebec City’s Montmorency Falls is the highest in the province of Québec. It also stands 30m higher than Niagara Falls. Montmorency Falls is a beautiful site all year round, but particularly in winter. As the temperatures drop, a massive ice ‘sugarloaf’ forms at the bottom of the falls, and the surrounding area is also covered. As this video shows, this makes for perfect ice climbing conditions.
