Elevation taken from provincial 1m lidar dataset (summit: 1000.67m). Line parent is mont du lac Bennett.

I visited this peak on august 2nd 2020 and stayed over an hour on the summit in order to log a 1h GNSS observation. The dual-frequency receiver was able to give relatively good results considering the summit is heavily forested (this is why the 2-sigma for the z-axis is 1.6m), and the resolved orthometric elevation returned by the NRCAN PPP service places the summit at 1000.457m. This is very close to the last-return (ground) lidar readings, so I am confident with the summit's elevation.
This measurement was one of the tests I wanted to perform to double-check the lidar data for edge-case summits.
