Ascent Trip Report

When coming from Mt Major Summit, head down the Brook Trail until it takes a sharp right at the bottom of a steep descent. There are yellow arrows pointing right (and today there was a major muddy area at this point). Look for a tree that has a green blaze on it for the start of the North Straightback Link. Several yards in are 2 more trees with green blazes and then a small broken sign a little further beyond that. Trail was not difficult to follow once on it. Quite steep the entire way with some rock scrambling near the top.
