Ascent Trip Report

This hike/climb was longer than my last one, and I stopped several times to catch my breath. A local high school kid training for his cross-country team even flew by me at one point. There was a section about 2/3 up that was very steep. At the summit visibility was unlimited. I could see Wachusett, as well the Wapack Range, including Monadnock.
