Ascent Trip Report

First trip out for the spring season this climb made my career to #200 summits it was a true accomplishment to get to this point and I am grateful for the opportunity I have to climb. I hiked up Mt. Welch first up the rock slab then over to the top... I met with a man at the top and he convinced me to climb the other side... haven't done it till this point, so this was a great opportunity to get to 200 so I went for it, the total time it took was 1 hr 41 mins minus the break at the top. Overall a beautiful Mt and ill hike it a lot this summer because its 5 miles away from my house
