Ascent Trip Report

Killed time during a 13-hr layover at Trudeau Airport. Took the #747 bus downtown; stepped off at Rue Peel. Took the most direct route I could find to the summit. Walked slow because it was warm and humid. On return took a foot tour of Montreal through McGill University, past Mary Queen of the World Cathedral, City Hall, into the Notre-Dame Basilica, plus Metro rides to and from Saint Helen's Island.
