Ascent Trip Report

My first climb in my Mountain Quest series. It being my first climb in over a decade, I stopped several times to catch my breath and drink a bit of water. There are several steep spots on the way up, which added variety and challenge. At the summit visibility was blue skies all the way. I could see both Worcester and Boston clearly. Very few people around (3 going up, 7 or 8 going down).
