Ascent Trip Report

Bushwhacked our way to Redington. Basically jumped south from S. Crocker, and saw that someone had left some nice pink ribbons for us to follow. Still tough to get there, and we got turned around a couple of times.
On the way back we went essentially back to S. Crocker (where we had left our packs) and jumped back on the AT. The climb down to Caribou Valley Rd (and especially the climb back up towards Sugarloaf) was BRUTAL.
