A Canadian Binnion
Ok, it may mot be the Rockies, but anyone who happens to be in Montreal might be interested in a an interesting bit of hill bagging. Until I visited the city, it never actually occurred to me where Montreal got its name, which comes from a volcanic-related hill that overlooks the city called Mont Royal. It’s 233m high and is topped by a towering metal cross that lights up at night. It is part of the large, 280 hectare Mont Royal Park (a mere trifle compared to the Phoenix Park’s 707!) and it dominates the city skyline. If you ever have the opportunity, the best approach is from the top of Rue Peel, which runs uphill from the waterfront for three kilometres. Directly across the road you’ll see steps, which is where the real work begins. There are 498 steps in total to be climbed, most of them wooden, which take you to a large paved viewing area with great views of the city skyline. After that there’s another kilometre of gently rising track to ascend to the cross, which is surrounded by woodland, so unfortunately no views here. The cross itself is thirty-two metres high and was erected in 1924. All in all a nice, unexpected bag in the middle of a city!

Re loading tracks in Garmin basecamp
ewen 8 hours ago.
I don't know if it is a basecamp issue but tracks from MV won't load in basecamp. My workaround is to load them into https://www.gpsvisualizer.com/ and save as a . gpx file. It is then usable.
