The area around Gaspe is rugged and cold, cold, cold. I don't know if it is ever really to cold to climb anywhere, but it is going to be an adventure for sure. I was there this August by the St Lawrence and it dipped into the 30's at night at 0 elevation. With the amount of precip we the northeast has been getting, I would be very surprised if they did not already have bomber thick ice. Getting there is going to be a trip also. From Montreal to gaspe is still a nice long ride.
