Ascent Trip Report

Parked just before the CT line on the MA side with the plan to reach the peak of Frissell but decided to return once atop and part way down the other side of Round Mountain. The way up was snowy and steep enough that I had to scramble on all fours(with snowshoes) and, at some point but I dont know how or when, I must have bashed my thumb which became infected for the next week. We will return to do Frissell. The views were quite good on this peak.
