Ascent Trip ReportGreat trip. Started out around 8:00 a.m. Only one person was on their way down, so we had to headway forest to ourselves. Pleasant days in high sixties to low seventies. Going up was slow, we stopped about 5 times to take drinks and catch our breath. The rock scrambles up higher were a lot of fun. Explored the rocks at the top and stopped to have some trail mix and water while staring out at the East. Could just barely make out New Hampshire, but overall miles and miles of visibility in all directions with only a few puffy clouds over the ranges in the distance. Lots of hikers here today, probably about 40 showed up with plenty of dogs.
