Ascent Trip Report

After traversing Terrace Mountain's ridge, I approached its northern peak. The grade was very easy and it wasn't long before I reached the summit. Again, I was surrounded by trees with almost no views except some neighboring mountains through the branches. Looking at the maps, I concluded the large mountain in front of me was Mt. Cabot, sporting a sizable slide talus. Seeing my final objective raised my spirit a bit although it still seemed quite far off. I now knew I was going to make it there in a still respectable time, but I wondered if the cabin would be fully occupied or not when I got there.

I took a few pictures and left along the trail towards Bunnell Notch. For the last time, I'd have to descend on my hurting knees, and it was a challenge to minimize the pain the whole way down.
