Ascent Trip Report

Hike leader Charlie Platt quote:
"Mt Hancock was a new find for Pasquaney. However, many aspirants to the A.M.C's Four Thousand Footer Club have already found it and constructed a rough trail to its two summits and along the connecting ridge. This trail is not yet officially recognized by the A.M.C., but following it is not difficult except when it passes up a steep land-slide. This section of the trail the First Walk... found exciting."
