Ascent Trip Report

A series of ridged plateaus rose to a summit loop road circling an upper plateau, with expansive views to the northward along the way and the Windham Blackhead Range Wilderness towering to the south and west from summit & large cairn. My bushwack up thru mostly open country crossed a number of roads following along ridgeline plateaus till finally reaching a well trodden summit loop road which descended to the east, with steep ridges on my way up more or less easily by-passed. A high ridge just below the summit offered outstanding views northward.
