Ascent Trip Report

From Baldpate West, I dipped into the col between it and Baldpate, descending a couple ladders in the process. The col was mostly a flat ledge walk, but once I started the climb of Baldpate, the going got steep and ledgy, but the views were excellent! The actual summit was very flat and encompassed a large area, but the views were still great from here as well. Even though Old Speck gets all the attention due to its 4,000+ ft. elevation, Baldpate is better IMO. Went back to Grafton Notch the same way.
