    This activity is offered to Centre Castor's civilian clientele thanks to an agreement signed between the Fédération québécoise de la montagne et de l'escalade (FQME) and the Department of National Defence. Participants are required to take out an annual or daily membership with the FQME. The annual membership gives access to the various affiliated sites. Both options include accident and disability insurance. However, participants are entirely responsible for their own safety and evacuation in the event of an accident.
