Peak Information

Torngarsoak Mountain is the second highest peak in Labrador, 8 kilometers away and 57 meters lower than nearby Mount Caubvick/Mont D'Iberville. From 1971 to 1979, Torngarsoak was thought to be the highest in Labrador, due to errors in topographic mapping. The name of the peak honors the chief sprit of the local First Nations people.

The first ascent was made in 1975 by Americans from the Appalachian Mountain Club, who thought they were ascending the region's high point. The second ascent was made in 1977 by Canadians who noticed that Caubvick/d'Iberville appeared higher from their vantage. They contacted Canadian mapping officials about their concerns, and it was discovered that the spire-like summit pyramid of Caubvick/d'Iberville was not property represented in their surveys.

With most climbing attention focused on the nearby provincial are regional high point, ascents of Torngarsoak are now very uncommon.
