Ascent Trip Report

I have pretty much abandoned the idea of seriously pursuing the MRC high points of Quebec, but the list does provide many good peaks well worth bagging and this is one of the better ones I've done to date. I really enjoyed going up the Panoramique trail, which opens up for about the last 500 m and lived up to its name. The summit is wide open and the weather was just perfect to sit and enjoy the views. I would do this one again.
