Ascent Trip Report

It was so warm, i did most of the hike in my tee baselayer and cut off my convertible pants to shorts. Went up via biscuit brook PA and turned off trail a little after the leanto. There was a faint herd path most of the way up until the rocks/cliffs on Fir. Gentle approach up and not terribly blood pumping. Enjoying the warm breezes on a sunny day, 54F in Feb? Amazing day.
