Ascent Trip Report

Awesome awesome hike. Gets step up where he's become shorter but not a terrible climb. Took the blueberry trail up to the peak. A relatively steep path but no scrambling till you get past the first exposrd ledge up near the peak. The scramble is at its toughest at a point where you use finger holes to get to the face of a rock, but the views from the top almost allow for full 360 degree views. After the awesome summit, we headed across Rollins ridge to dicey mills trail. Sounds itself lasted much longer than two miles typically would feel to me, but the dicey mills was a great slope down. Next time i would be intrigued to do the full loop over pasaconaway as well.
