Ascent Trip Report

Redlining AMC South. Started at Windblown Wapack parking area, went up Kidder and over to Temple Rd kiosk. Had hoped to go up to Burton Peak and down Berry Pasture trail, but as we attempted to spot a car discovered Mountain Road is a Summer Only road. Bare ground, mud, ice and some snow that will surely be slush after today's warm temps. We wore spikes off and on as needed on the ice. We had the summit to ourselves then passed several parties on our descent. Pleasantly surprised with views from summit! Big bang for little effort.
