Ascent Trip Report

Day # 107 Great Barrington
Sluggish all day, no real zip. Took a short bushwack to Bushnell and the bad weather bypass over East Mountain-Southeast Peak.
Wasn't sure if Wilcox shelter had water (no sb'ers today), so I went to the Hostel at East Mountain Retreat Center (a silent religious retreat), 1 1/2m walk, left on hwy #MA23.
