The Grace of Stones: Dancing on a Rock Face in Luskville, Quebec

It is a community of a few dwellings, a gas station and a shabby mini-mall, all dispersed along Highway 148 amidst grassy fields and rolling hills of the Ottawa valley.  Luskville is well-known among Ottawa’s climbers.  The area houses a few fine climbing spots frequented by sport and lead climbers as well as free soloists and occasional hikers. Just like obscure labels of Luskville’s climbing routes– “Death by Maboola,” “Ethics Police” or “Your Wife” – the names of climbing sections are somewhat baffling, at times explicable, and often an inside joke.  Today, we are headed to the “Eastern Block” and “DownUnder.”
