Ascent Trip Report

I Skipped the day of school to join my brother a a friend of his, named Dave on the journey up this mountain. It was a cold day from the start down at the bottom (Tripoli Road) I Knew this was a 4,000 footer and i am trying to check the list off as we go, so i said climbing a 4,000 footer is the same as making up a PE class. It was a very good trail, i thought it was great in clean wise, it was one of those mountains that has a gradual incline nothing like the other 4,000 footers we've previously done. when you get to the summit there is a huge opening to a 180 degree view, a great chance to look at other potential hikes. The trail was very well maintained, a bit icy near the top. light snow the night before I'm guessing, but i would recommend this hike to most any hiker, a great hike, a great view, not to hard to climb. this hike could go for anyone from a young adventurer to a advanced hike trying to tackle the 4,000 footers. A great hike and i hope to Climb the East Peak soon, Maybe Try to tag both next time i go.
