Ascent Trip Report

A farm track/bushwack ..... 400M, 15 minutes RT.

From Thetford Mines I drove north on 267 to its junction with 216 at Saint-Jean-de-Brebeuf where I turned left on 216 for 2.2kmn to a right at 3e Rang (Chemin de la Chapelle), 3.2km to sharp bend left, I parked here, this was my TH. There is a barbed-wire gate that can be easily opened.

Th summit is 200M north on the farm track, just inside the woods ...... the obvious HP has a post with an orange Survey Marker "Quebec Government, Repere Geodesique 71K 6163". The marker is broken so I'm not sure if the number 1 in 6163 is correct.

Across the col to the southwest I could see an inviting Communication Tower, so I went over.
