Ascent Trip Report

#4 on the Saranac lake 6er's challenge, first two or so miles were flat, possibly down hill even, cool bridge over ray brook then u walk for awhile not a lot to see until you hit the old concrete slabs and after that its uphill from there, there's one short 40-50 foot section that's steep rock face you have to pull yourself up with the tree roots sucks even more coming back down shared the top with a chatty old man, his wife and there rude friend,a snotty old lady with a bad attitude LMAO (no really I HATE her)no views at all at the summit just a disc on a tree, seems longer than the 3.4 miles the sign says it is. Nice day in the woods next ampersand
