This movie project came from one clear idea : The splendour of winter climbing and the unique scenery of Quebec has to be discovered and promoted to the world climbing communities! We wanted to show how we fulfill our dream of adventures here on the gentle rolling hills of eastern Canada and how we recreate the emotional rushes of alpine climbing. In Directissima, you will discover the Saguenay (Cap Trinité) and the Charlevoix (Mont du Gros Bras) regions. They are both terrific hardcore training ground for greater mountain ranges and it’s also at the cutting edge for winter climbing. The difficulty levels, high winds, spindrift snow, cold factor, frostbitten fingertips and remoteness make these grounds world class.
