Ascent Trip Report

I was able to park at the Shattuck Observatory parking lot, here at Dartmouth University, since this was a holiday, so the ascent was literally a couple hundred feet. Nice setup at the top with adirondack chairs to enjoy the view, under the watchful eye of the Robert Frost statue (and the Campus PD). The peakbagger coordinates are correct for this location.
