Ascent Trip ReportLeft the Wonalancet TH at about 8:30 (it's only 1h30m from Portland), taking the cutoff route up Blueberry ledge to Whiteface. Trail is fairly steep and can get tricky around the ledges, but it's nothing impossible. I headed over separate from the group to snag East Sleeper, which was on a trail with excessive blowdown. Hit the summit of Whiteface at approx. 1:30, and then had celebratory beers, and descended after about an hour watching the clouds on the ledges. Overall, took us about 7 hours including breaks and the side trip. Total approx 11 mi.
