Ascent Trip Report

From the true summit of Mount Frissell, I headed downslope about 0.2 mi to the southern slope, the highest point in Connecticut. It was marked with a cairn and metal prong in the ground. Unlike the true summit, there was a view from here! I took a victory shot and then talked to a fellow hiker who came from the "tri-point". (See report for MA/CT/NY tri-point.) We chatted a bit and then went our separate ways. Next stop, the "tri-point".
