Ascent Trip Report

Were going for Huntington but a combination of wind and basically impenetrable bush (when coated with the prior day's ice) made the going too tough to be enjoyable. We (Noah and I) were not expecting to get these views on the bushwhack and it was breathtaking what we saw! Hoping to find time this summer to return as I also learned winter bushwhacks are not my thing. Took Hancock Notch trail to just west of the height-of-land then bushwhacked.
