Ascent Trip ReportParked in third PA on Spruceton Road - got out of the car and it was as cold as a witch's elbow! Put the fleece on since the first mile or so wasfairly easy - then took it off for the climb and back on again at the top. The cave looked cozy and the spring was running on low. When the sun was out (between the clouds) it was great. Good views from Buck Ridge Lookout.
