Ascent Trip Report

Left at 5:30AM - via Long Trail, reached Baxter Summit at 9:58AM. Back at camp around 3:00PM

From 3500ft to 4500ft (until reaching the table) is mostly a scramble - pretty formidable hike. There are three points where there have been metal bars placed to help you climb up and down the rock.
