Ascent Trip Report

Peak 3 on the AMC Boston Chapter trip. Great peak to climb and nice to knock out 2 4K's in the traverse. Long hike down as the team was tired and there was one of our hikers who was really slow on the decent. Stopped by the Hut on the way down. Very heavily traveled loop with a lot of hikers on it today.
