Ascent Trip Report

Started off at the trailhead on Rt 6 in Farmington. Climbed in the middle of February and the first half of the trail was covered in deep mud. There were two peaks -- the first being a pile of glacial boulders that is sometimes advertised as a "cave" and the second being what appears to be the true summit. There are two tall radio towers at the summit. Took a couple hours to ascend but would have taken less time had it not been so muddy.
