Ascent Trip Report

Excellent day, and apparently I timed it right. Only saw 2 SB thru hikers on my way up, and had both summits to myself, but passed a few dozen people on my descent. Trail muddy but overall in good condition. Lots of rock work and bog bridges. The NB approach to the E peak is very exposed to north and west winds, and these ledges could be dangerous when wet ... luckily they were dry on this day.
