Ascent Trip Report

Went part-way up to the Gros Morne Mtn summit, while hiking in the national park. Since it was still in the closure season (cannot summit the actual mountain due to wildlife breeding), I was a good boy scout and stopped short of summitting.
A very enjoyable hike and light scramble, in a wild and very empty part of NFLD. It was also in early season, so almost no fellow hikers.
