Ascent Trip Report

Recently completing Mont du Gros-Bras 5/02/18 and Mont du Lac des Cygnes - Sommet Ouest’s (2) peaks (forbidden) 11/02/18; Mont de l’Ours’s southern peak and Mont de l’Ours Summit share the most encompassing view(s) of Parc National Grands Jardins via multiple vantage points. Constant terrain change made for an excellent trek; insuring my friend Eric and I were alert and diligent with each stride forging forward, excellent bush wack, scramble and snow climb. Eric insisted we explore the West rock face along the ascent; one miss placed foot and we’d of slid 75-100m, the GoPro video’s incredible traversing this icy snow wall of terror. Infantry, wooo!
