Synopsis: Tom Canac and Hugo Drouin attempt to climb one of the last virgin cracks of Cap Trinité in Saguenay Fjord National Park, Quebec. First climbed in the 1960’s, it is in many ways the jewel of Quebec’s cliffs. The 1,000 foot rock face dominates a majestic fjord in a sublime, wild environment. As steep as one could wish, Cap Trinité was marked by its many historic ascents that forever defined climbing in the province of Quebec. During an expedition, Tom Canac uncovered a 35-degree overhang, made out of the characteristic orange crumbling rock that lead to a 500 foot isolated and exposed pillar, with a continuous crack from top to bottom.

Loose rock, lichen, dirt-filled cracks and bad weather will cause Hugo Drouin to leave the project before even reaching the pillar. Le Temps Suspendu explores the mind of Tom Canac, a climber inspired by pioneers with a deep obsession and dedication to his ethics. A fixation on climbing history will eventually culminate to what seemed like his utmost goal at the time, establishing a new big wall route ground-up. This aid-solo adventure was more than just a climb, but an exploration into his inner self, battling with his desires and ego between the sky and the fjord.
