Ascent Trip Report

I co-led an AMC hike in the Belknaps for the 20s and 30s group. There was so many people that the there were 2 groups. Jamie and Nick led one, myself and Rick Desmaris led the other group. We had some confusion and sometimes getting lost while making our way up Straightback. There were a lot of trails, some of them not our maps (like snowmobile trails). We eventually reached the summit, but we were socked in by clouds. As we were leaving, the other group showed up. So we had lunch on the summit before we separated again. Major was next.
