Ascent Trip Report

Started early morning, drove down the Caribou Pond Rd and started off to the AT junction. The climb up Sugarloaf was rather steep for the first mile or so and then because rather easy going towards the summit. Got to the summit and the wind was unbelievable. Almost lost my hat a couple of times to the strong gusts and gales. Had a snack and then came down the mountain and headed for Spaulding.
