Ascent Trip Report

No views here but found a looping trail system allowing for a short bushwhack to summit followed by a tramp to the higher Unnamed West Rutland (FCC site Hanley Mountain) and the hang glider site with its awesome field of views out across Rte 4 and hills beyond, managing another bushwhack going back up across ridgeline to views of West Rutland so reaching down to another tote road back.
