Ascent Trip Report

After our ascent of sommet de Moncton, we descended to the col towards our actual main goal, the southern summit. Getting to the true high point on the mountain was a simple proposition. We followed the rounded ridge over wind drift and crust past the treeline and up on the summit dome. It was windy but more than bearable so we admired the view and pinpointed nearby summits before retreating down towards the col. We were back on sommet de Moncton in no time and, following our tracks, made it back to the glade leading to the northern bump. From there we would hop over to this very insignificant shoulder.
