| Location:||USA-New Hampshire|

Ascent Trip ReportThis is a fairly steep climb turning into a scramble after the first trail merge. I ascended via the White Dot Trail and descended via the White Cross Trail. The summit has a magnificent 360 degree view and was cool with a stiff North wind. We had hoped to see the Broadwing migration but only saw 3 while close by Pack Monadnock had over 500 Broadwings. The Boston skyline was very visible. This summit deserves all the acclaim it has.
