Ascent Trip Report

I just got back from college last Friday and i am here in Maine till the 29th, no major plans. today my mom gave me the car to play with and what better to do that climb was a bit of a wintery mix today, it was pretty slippery on the road. I drove up to the base of the mtn, and man was it slippery. i got out of the car and almost slipped, i made it up ok inching my way to the top. when i got to the top i saw the changes going on at the top. they crew is still workign at the top, they are still building the new tower it looks great they are almost done, they are doing some tree sweeping it was pretty cool to see that again, i headed back down the mountain i half ran i made it up in 28 mins, and i made it down in 17 minutes but overall it was a great hike, jsut very slippery i wouldnt go up again without crapons but i cant wait to do that again
