Ascent Trip Reportw Monica and the randomites (Paddle & Plod 2010). The destination of this hike was changed to Kennebago Divide the day before when we failed to get to the summit on our hike - no one in the group wanted to let this little summit defeat us so easily. We chose a different route then the day before and climbed up the longer west side. The logging road and unmaintained paths led us to the col where we simply chose to follow the rule "the shortest distance between two points is a straight line and went from the col to the summit. Occasionally we would have a path to follow for a short bit but mostly it was just pushing through the branches and over the blowdowns. As usual, Monica sniffed out the route like a bloodhound looking for its prey and the summit that had alluded us just 24 hours before got checked off the list. East Kennebago will have to wait for another day.
