Wikipedia says D'Iberville has extremely unpredictable weather and was first ascended in 1973. It's not too far from the Arctic circle. I'm not sure if anyone on this forum has experience in the Torngats range, but I suggest being very cautious and bringing the right knowledge and equipment.

First ascent in 1973? I'm guessing more people climb Everest than this peak.

A trip to that mountain is a full on expedition. If you guys make it up there please fill us in on the details.

Weather data? You might have to pay somebody to do research into that place. Unless you stumble across something on the internet you're going to have to rely on a meteorologist making educated guesses about that region.

JFHere's a site that provides detailed information about the area (http://www.stuyvesantcove.org/Torngats/Torngats_Main.shtml). I've always been fascinated by the Torngats since finding them on a map while doing research on Mount Jacques-Cartier, up in the beautiful Chic-Choc Mountains.

Beautiful country. And what a low tree line!
