Ascent Trip Report

Summiting Mont du Gros Ruisseau - Sommet Ouest was today’s Objective.

Once on Mont du Gros Ruisseau, I decided I wouldn’t upon backtracking, descend deeper into the valley below to cover the final 800m (appx.) using headlamp.

The man who ventures toward summits does not feel as though he were ascending; he only sees the earth sinking deeper under him, there is a mystery which only those will understand who feel the truth of it.
