Ascent Trip ReportI believe I hiked this mountain in 1991, but may be off by a year.
I recall waiting for several dozen nuns, in full dress, to pass by while I was on the way up. The summit was packed with people. I observed a woman in a full dress and high heals (yes, high heals) sitting on a rock near the summit balling her eyes out. Nearby was a man in a suit and tie wearing penny loafers just staring at her. I can only guess she hiked up barefoot.
I made a clear ham radio contact using a handheld with 0.5 watts power from the summit to someone I knew on Block Island, RI.
