Ascent Trip Report

Expecting a hard slog, (from an earlier in the day whack at East Gray Hill bare-boot post-holing thru crust into a deep snow at final climb), found an easy snowshoe ascent well snow packed by ATV, DEC blazed (yellow & red) trails leading up to the ridgeline following along the old (now cleared away in red) Long Path aqua blazes; the narrow ridgeline and its trail offers awesome views to both north and south now easily accessed at Ashland Pinnacle State Forest, bearing further explorations.
