"Easy" by mountain bushwhacking standards. Whack up mountain from North Hollow Rd. .6 miles in from Rt.100 . Straight up fall line through deciduous forest on lower two thirds of mountain, mixed higher up, came out on ridge .7 north of summit, very wet fern whack with aid of moose trails along ridge top to summit and h.p. No wildlife sightings but much moose and some bear sign on upper half of mountain.
