Ascent Trip Report

Sunny day, 50's at the base, 30's on the summit. 100 minutes (and two wrong turns) up, and 60 minutes down. The views were amazing - I could see the snow on the ski trails (but not the rest of the slopes) of Mt. Wachusett, every other nearby peak of the Wapack Trail (and others), and even Boston way off on the horizon. A storm has snapped the tree upon which the summit sign is attached, but it is still easily located.
