Ascent Trip ReportWas out doing some red-lining around the Mahoosuc area and decided to also grab Bald Cap while I was in the area. Saw a moose and calf in a pond on the way up. I bushwacked up the western side of Bald Cap off the AT, going through a couple of dense spruce belts on the way up. Eventually reached the summit canister. Bryan was the last person to have visited that summit. Then went down in a southernly direction. But due to some 15 foot ledges, I went more southeasternly to get around the ledges. Took awhile and endured many new scratches on my legs, but eventually reached the AT again.
