Default Re: Stocking the La Diable River - Mont Tremblant, QC

Pack with water and fish weighs around 40-60 pounds. No real problem if straps set properly for balance, but you still have to take it easy when going down steep hilly slopes, and those were many. With the heavy and constant rain the walking stick helped also. Some places they had ropes tied to threes so you could hold on to it going down backward. The ropes also helped going back up sections of hills even with an empty packsack. Some other places, they had built long staircase, but most places is was a wet slippery beaten dirt/muddy path.
