Ascent of Anna Mountain on 2012-02-20
|Date:||Monday, February 20, 2012|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|
| Elevation:||1660 ft / 505 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI ascended from the Route 11 parking lot along the blue-blazed Mt. Major Trail, taking the ledges approach to the summit (there is also a ledges detour route). From there, I followed the Major-Straightback Link over to Straightback South, and added an out-and-back to Anna Mountain along the Anna-Straightback Link. Once back at Straightback South, I took the Quarry Trail to the main summit of Straightback, and then followed a green-blazed trail downhill and north to where I met up with the Brook Trail. The Brook Trail took me back to the Mt. Major Trail, which I followed back to my starting point on Route 11.
The Anna summit is mostly wooded, but there is a partial view a bit downslope from the highest point, near a large cairn.
