Ascent Trip ReportObscure wood tracks ..... 2.6km, 50 minutes RT.
From the little hamlet of Saint-Philippe-de-Chester we went east on rue Saint-Philippe .7km to a left on rue Frechette, 2.6km north at T-junction turned right on Rang Pellerin, .8km southeast was my TH at a small track on the right (45.95979,-71.74435). This is a very rough/risky road to drive, I actually parked about 200 meters before. The HP is due south.
I followed the track (drops to a low area before starting to climb, obscure in places) south/southwest, went by an old broken down shed as it climbs .7km to a ridge north of the summit at 45.95633,-71.74770... to the west I could see a Maple Sap Plastic Tubing. Here I picked up a better tracks that went generally south another .6km directly to the HP .... somewhat obvious (45.95225,-71.74480), wooded, nothing interesting and not a recommended destination, for Peakbaggers only.
"FROM HIM YOU'LL GET MORE WIND THAN RAIN." ...... a canadian saying for a blabbermouth.
