Ascent Trip Report

Another try at walking on (frozen) water, I easily reached up along an untraveled Relay Road to the col between East Gray Hill & Narrow Notch Mtn enjoying views down across to west along the way; the col an open field of converging trails, I followed a seeming tote road upward finding frozen ground in the lowest parts of these old roads with the last quarter mile a dodge of solid ground and deep dry snow post-holing (last days rains less so higher up) till reaching a mostly solid to walk summit, briars no problem this time of year with almost all-around views. I'd thought to try for higher and further Narrow Notch Mtn but figuring my need to return for snowshoes, went on to Ashland Pinnacle planning there a return to hiking bye snowshoe.
