  1. Where's this?

  2. Is 'cliff' the correct term?

  3. Can a 79 y.o. man hike this safely?

    Some 79yo will have no trouble with this, others won't get close. We have no way to know which. I suggest you edit out this part of your question.

That looks like the top of the Montagne des Érables, the highest point in Parc national des Hautes-Gorges-de-la-Rivière-Malbaie. The shot on the right is pretty much the same as the current picture on the Wikipedia article.

In order to reach the trails to l'Acropole ["Acropole des draveurs" is the name of the hike to the top, as I understand it], hikers must take a bus from the reception. The hike is 10 km round trip with an elevation gain of approximately 800 m (2,600 ft).
