Ascent Trip Report

Tough hike, 6"-12" of fresh snow, so lots of trail breaking.

6 1/2 hrs round trip from Rt 112 parking lot.

Lots of random routes up which skiers take. Be careful and take the route close to the brook. We didn't and ended up doing a short waist deep bushwhack back over to the trail when the tracks we were tacking ended.

Sledded back down - a F'ing blast!!
