Ascent Trip ReportThis is an easy bushwhack compared to the others. I don't know why it seemed so difficult last time. On the western slope there is a cairn right on the AT that marks the manway to the summit. There are a few blowdowns to navigate but they aren't too bad. It should take you about 10-15 minutes to summit.
