Ascent Trip Report

Enjoyed a fun loop today as a few of us rounded up the LG12 for winter and the regular season. We parked at Hog Town as the gate was closed for the winter. From Hogtown to Dacy is ~ 1.7 miles with a little up an down on the way. Once at Dacy we got on trail and made our way toward the Sleeping Beauty lookouts and then from there we started on the trail to Bumps Pond. On the way we decided to take the quick jump off trail to climb up a bit and find the true summit of Sleeping Beauty which is rarely visited as it is treed in (Disappointed to see the new summit sign is already missing) . From here we drop down to Bumps Pond and onto Fish Pond as we make our way to Erebus. From the edge of Fish Pond we cross the ice, climb up and intersect the east trail around Erebus until we find a good spot to begin the 0.5 mile bushwhack up. The climb up to the summit of Erebus from this side is roughly 0.5 mile and 600' of climb. The woods are fairly open outside of a short ring of dense pines just beneath the crown which opens up into a meadow-like summit. From here it was a nice easy decent through fluffy snow and ice and an easy walk out along the base of Sleeping Beauty. ~11.5 miles in the woods.
