Ascent Trip Report

From VT100 north of Lower Granville, take Maston Hill Rd. to a right on North Hollow Rd. to the unmarked, ungated start of the Braintree Gap trail around 1690' elevation. Follow this 4WD trail E to Braintree Gap and a bootleg campsite; a Jeep would get you here. From the gap, follow the ridge SSE over several false summits, one of which (2863) has a register jar that I couldn't open. Easy bushwhacking throughout. On the true summit, an openable register jar and a cleared view SE. Return same way.
