Ascent Trip Report

Entered 10/19/2019.

After hiking the ridge from Nonotuck to Goat Peak, we descended into the col and crossed Reservation Road. We then began ascending again up to Whiting Peak. It's smooth going until the end where there's a bit of scrambling to the summit. It's interesting how steep and jagged some of these mountains are for being so ancient. Quite impressive to observe.
