The Société d’histoire et du patrimoine de Val-David particularly wishes to thank Claude Lavallée for his encouragement, support for research and access to his personal archives. As a highly experienced mountaineer, Claude Lavallée has spent many years creating a visual and circumstantial memorial to the development of rock climbing in Canada, and particularly in Val-David. Thanks to Claude, this memorial is now accessible.
The Société d’histoire et du patrimoine de Val-David also wishes to thank Suzanne Arbique, who helped us better understand the long saga of the creation of the Val-David–Val-Morin Regional Park.
