Climbing Escapes

Climbing Escapes offers outdoor rock climbing experiences in Quebec for all levels of climbers who want to get out of their comfort zone, connect with nature and meet like-minded individuals.

Created in 2016, Climbing Escapes’ mission is to empower people to climb higher in life through safe and fun rock climbing courses and experiences. Join us today!

We offer 3 types of courses: introduction to rock climbing, anchor building, and womxn’s empowerment retreats in both English and French. Created in 2016, Climbing Escapes is founded by Emma Contaoe, an FQME certified rock climbing instructor.

Rock climbing is more than just physical movements up the rock. It’s about what you can learn about the climbing journey. It is about learning through the challenges, facing your fears, finding courage and gaining the confidence to do whatever it is your mind desires. The sky is the limit!
