Ascent Trip Report

Just learned about the Saranac 6, so of course I had to try a few. TheGreatExplorer and I set out to do the easiest one after breakfast. We parked along the banks of the Moody Pond and started up. About half way, she decided that this was enough and headed back down with a nice lady and her dog. I kept going and was surprised at the steepness of the hike toward the end. No real views from the summit, but just below there is some openings with great views of Saranac Lake and the area.
