Ascent Trip Report

Began ascent in late morning from the north end of the mountain on Duxbury Road. 6 miles up,extremely steep in spots, but a beautiful clear day made it more than worth it. Very cold on summit. Could spot Mount Washington as well as the Adirondacks in the distance. Lots of boulder hopping on descent via the Long Trail south. We took the longest route to get to the top.
