Ascent Trip Report

We dropped a car at The Garden Parking lot and started at Rooster Comb lot. We hiked to the junction and up the side trail to Rooster Comb. We descended back to the junction and continued up the the summit of Hedgehog. We continued over Lower Wolfjaw, Upper Wolfjaw, Armstrong, and Gothics. We descended down the cable route and back up to the summit of Saddleback. We then descended the Saddleback Cliffs and continued up to Basin, up Little Haystack, and Haystack. We came back down over Little Haystack again and headed up Marcy. We then hiked down to John's Brook Lodge and eventually to The Garden. Thunderstorms and darkness made the last 2.5 miles a little "fun". Start time was 6am and we finished at 10:30pm.
