Ascent Trip Report

After spending a couple of days in The Whites, I decided to hit a FT on my way home to break up the drive. When I arrived at the TH, the skies were clear but the trails were your usual ADK mud! I was spoiled in NH, there isn't as much mud up there. The ascent is a good little workout!! Nothing technical or strenuous but a constant climb.

As I approached the summit, the rains came! The views from the FT were pretty cool because it was a mixture of rain and sunny views depending on which direction you looked. I had a quick sandwich under the building shelter than quickly descended as I could hear thunder in the distance.

Motion X stats: 3.22 miles; 2:29:48; 1,515' gain
