|Others in Party:||Rose|
|Date:||Monday, August 2, 2010|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
|Peak:||North Île Jésus High Point|
| Elevation:||197 ft / 60 m|
Ascent Trip ReportDrive-by on Avenue des Perron, doesn't have the look or feel of a highpoint.
From autoroute #440 on the Laval Island drive north on Avenue Papineau to the stop light on Avenue des Perron, turn right and drive east for half a km to the west entrance of Urgel Bourgie Funeral Grounds (#2500 Avenue des Perron). The highpoint is across the road (north side) on the front lawn of the corner house, it was so easy that I forgot to take my GPS coordinates.
This whole area is flat (perhaps all within a few meters elevation)and it seemed to me that there is higher ground elsewhere in the area, I have no way to verify this since my cheap GPS is very erratic, although fairly reliable for coordinates. I called it good.
ADDENDUM DATED 2014-04-17.
The HP of Ile Jesus perhaps has more than one candidate. In fact if the available data is correct "the" HP of Ile Jesus is Mont-Laval (see my Mont-Laval TR, link below). It was John McHugh that brought this to light, see his TR for the details.
