Ascent Trip Report

After driving out of the Territoire AU. F. U. INC. we went west to hwy #204 then followed it north easterly to Saint-Ludger and junction #204 and 9e Rang. We drove south on 9e Rang for 12.2km to a left on unsigned gated road, sign "Erablier Rejean Doyon". 1.3km south is the locked gate to "Territoire AU. F. R. INC.
We zeroed our odo.
0.0km ... left 9e Rang eastbound on unsigned road, luckily the gate was open.
2.1km ... arrive at Erablier Rejean Doyon on left, the main road turns right, unfortunately blocked off by 2 workers cutting firewood. I talked to the workers and they told me that I could get to my destination by staying straight on the lesser road, they had no problem with me going to the boundary. They warned me that the gate will close at 16:00 hours.
We stayed straight and continued east.
3.1km ... arrived at the end of the road with a few sheds, the good road comes in from the right (southwest). We parked here (45.65454,-70.57755). A woods road continues right-of-east to the Boundary Line (my route).

I walked the woods road beside the shed right-of-east .7km to a right turn on an old woods road, .5km southwest at height-of-land a hunters track heads/climbs (left) south .2km to a hunters stand at the Boundary swath. The chosen HP is on the right at 40M .... right on the Line at GPS 45.64938,-70.57279.

Monument 392 "granite renewed 1989" is 70 meters west in a depression before another bump, hunter's salt lick trap with stand to its north on QC side.

We drove back to 9e Rang and on to Sixty Nine Mountain - North Peak.
