Ascent Trip Report

Tried to get a big chunk of the Great Range done today. Parked at the Johns Brook trailhead (crowded). Hiked up the Phelps trail to the trail up to the col between Lower Wolf Jaw and Upper Wolf Jaw. Pretty steep hike. Climber over Upper Wolf Jaw, Armstrong, then Gothics. As it was harder going than I expected, I didn't go over to Saddleback and Basin as planned. Dropped down the trail between Gothics and Saddleback (Range Trail)and was pleased to find a large staircase built into the slide! A marvel of engineering! Nice look catching back up with the Johns Brook trail, which I took back to the trailhead.
