Ascent Trip Report

I finished earlier at work and I had some time to spent before heading to my sister dinner at Breakyville. I made a stop in Levis to bag this mountain. I was suprise by the huge cap once I parked my car on the adjacent street. I put my snowshoes on as the kids playing in the street were wondering what I was doing. I started my hike towards rue du Malakoff. It was a steep icy climb and I would have like to have my piolet or at least my poles who were in the car. I did it anyway, reach the summit, take a couple pictures as the view is completely insane on the St-Lawrence river!!! I watch the sunset a little bit but it was -12°C, very windy and I was beginning to get cold. I followed my own track to get down to the car except for the short portion with the steep climb. Nice place, you should go there too! :)
