Ascent Trip ReportPond Mountain Trail has not been maintained, and this turned out to be tougher than I anticipated. Out of water, besieged by bugs, and wearied by a totally unnecessary bushwhack, I turned back about a half-mile from the summit. I returned 2012-12-08 for a successful climb. See that report for details.
