Ascent Trip Report

Met up with Pete, Paul and the new freshman: Andy, Connor "tacos", and Cyrus "Kitchenaid". Cool bunch. Started from Coreys Road somewhere between Tupper and Saranac. Hiked in and camped at the Camp Four Lean-to. Pete sprained his ankle the night before so he stayed behind. Really steep, rocky ledges most of the way up, definitely tough on the legs. The view at the top wasn't anything special. But it was nice to get out there again. Not bad for the week before classes start again.
