Ascent Trip Report

Went up the Hunt trail. Bridge at Katahdin stream crossing was out so there’s a temporary ford. Boulder he’ll wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Not to say it was easy or pleasant, but not the most terrible boulder mess I’ve ever encountered. Made it to the summit in 3:40. Didn’t spend a long time up there on account of the crowd and it was socked in by clouds so there wasn’t much of a view. Got a five second glimpse of the knife edge before clouds rolled back over. Descended in 3 hours on the nose. I found the blazes difficult to locate on occasion during he descent through the boulders, so keep your eyes peeled!
