Ascent Trip ReportFinished my 46 on this peak with John and Mike. Ascended via Rt 73 North Bouquet -> S Bouquet to do the Great Slide of East Dix. We didnt realize the herd path started from the 'driveway' up from the PA; we actually hopped over the highway and hiked directly from the N Bouquet crossing on 73. We hit the herd path briefly but didn't see the water crossing, so just followed the stream up a narrow fisherman's path till we caught up with the herd path again just north of the ponds. From there on it was very clear. Took the second slide up, was gorgeous and blood pumping the whole way up. Weather was a little warm but other than that was an excellent day and finish of the 46. Hike back was easy just warm, cooled down at the water crossings. Not sure of the miles on this, seemed a little over 10.
