Ascent Trip Report

this was a fun climb plenty of switchbacks in the beginning made for easy walking then they stop and the climbing starts but it was never steep for more than a few yards at a time making it a very easy hike overall but towards the top there are a few short steep sections that kept it interesting but they were short lived then bam great views from all the open ledges a secondary trail pretty much follows along the cliffs to the north summit that was a little wooded and really no matter where u were on the top they were all the same views every time we hike near Keene we go to the Cedar Run bakery and market afterwards for some lunch great food every time wish we had one closer to home.(I'd be so fat)
