Ascent Trip Report

Started the very easy way up to Spaulding after coming down from Sugarloaf. The spur path had a sign that said 150 yrds, but it felt more like 200 :). Not really that much of a view, a few areas that you can see out into the southern mountains but not much other then that. Had lunch here and then ran over to the Abram TH Jct from the AT.
