Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the second-to-last parking area on Route 6 and followed Spruceton trail (Blue) northish to the sharp bend, then struck out north to the summit. Pretty easy bushwack, found the cannister without too much trouble - the tracks in the snow at the top looked like someone had come from the other side. Crampons the whole way. Slick ice on the trail, snow/ice and mud on the way up during the bushwack. Nice day, like 60 degrees out at times.
