Ascent Trip Report

It was a bit cool when we were in the parking lot, but we warmed up once we started hiking. The summit was in the clouds, winds 20-25 mph with gusts of about 35 maybe. Briefly spoke with a helpful hiker below the summit. Turns out he was Larry Davis, who has hiked Monadnock ~6000 times. White Dot is a fun trail, which makes up for our lack of views.
