Ascent Trip Report

This was my first climb in an alpine toundra ascent. For those of you that haven't had a chance to try this type of ascent, what a treat! Three of my sons, Jean, Dominique and Charles (12 years old) accompanied me on this hike. We were able to witness one of the last indigenous populations of toundra caribou in North America. A 5 star experience.
