Ascent Trip Report

My second highpoint of the weekend and the third overall peak. I set out early like the day before and this time met up with a doctor who was also there to hike to the top – we started off together and got to the top after about 4 hours. As we got close to the summit, we passed the tree line and entered the clouds. About 50 more feet of ascending and we reached the top. We hung around the top for about twenty minutes and the clouds cleared away to yield great views. A nice decent down and then I hopped into the car and headed for Mt Greylock.
