Ascent Trip Report

An enjoyable hike in the Montagne Noire massif.
I have done a lot of hiking in the Mt. Tremblant park itself but have, until now, neglected the section of the Laurentians immediately to the south of the park, near St. Donat. This is a worthwhile objective, both as a day hike and as a traverse of the entire section of the range (from Montagne Grise, over the other hills).

A pleasant day that verged on hot, with some easy hiking as well as strenuous and boulder sections. There are only limited summit views but that is compensated for by the excellent panoramic views from the refuge, on a sub-summit about 1.5 km away, and the nice open views from the alternate descent down from the mountain.
