Ascent Trip Report

Left the parking lot around 10:30a from the south parking lot on Rt 40. Moderate mosquito nuisance in the parking lot. Hiked to the sign in sheet at the TH near the other Rt 40 parking lot. Only two groups on the mountain at signin. Rain was predicted but the day was more a partly cloudy early summer feel. The trail condition was good with not too much mud. Made the first lean-to in 50 minutes. Summited around 12:30p. Ate lunch and climbed firetower even though the top was locked. Returned to car by 3:30pm. Started raining as we were removing boots. Firetower #15
