A ridge ascent accessing Mont Lyall, a backcountry playground in the Chic Chocs

Ross Bretherton
Type: Backcountry or Sidecountry

Description

Starting from the Lyall Parking lot, this ascent is very well signed. It begins quite mellowly on logging roads until it hits the ridgeline and begins to rapidly ascend the mountain. The track is usually well broken in, but is pretty steep and has some hairy kick turns.

From the top there are several gladed runs, all leading back to a well-signed return track.

Visit: facebook.com/MontLyall/ for information on the mountain's development.
