Ascent Trip Report

An awesome, almost 360° view from open rocky summit with Grand Monadnock dominating a long stretching western horizon, smaller eastern views on the climb up to (skier reached) East Peak following snowshoe tracks to col (and new two story cabin at a drive's end); from col, I bushwhacked breaking trail about three hundred yards southwest to a well beaten herd path going up Winn to that best view of all, seeing a sketch of hills all-around framing the Monadnocks, after enjoying my (so-close-to-home) highland vista, backtracking my descent to col, again along an earlier looping snow-shoed track, following drive way down, thanx!
