Ascent Trip Report

Not a winter ascent. Long drive in, West of Deerfield on T303 and 117. We parked at the intersection of 117 and 377.1A. We walked up 1A about a half mile or so and then went direct to the peak. Very gentle climb. Was still a bit of snow up there in April. Kind of a flat top up there, no great views, but you are up at 7000 ft. Not sure how they got the name Crows Nest? We found some concrete footings up there and signs that there might have been a lookout tower or some kind of structure at the summit. Easy hike.
