Ascent Trip Report

From Blue Job's summit, Ray and I headed downhill about 200' vertical to the col between it and Little Blue Job, which had a neat little pond. We went around the right side of it and made the climb to the impressively bare summit, which IMHO had better views than its parent peak. We ate some snacks for a bit and then began the hike back to the TH.

Getting back to the TH without re-climbing BJM was tough- there were so many old woods roads and bootleg trails. Needless to say, we did re-climb Blue Job, adding an extra 200 vertical feet to the hike. Once back at the top, we headed down the slightly longer trail and were back at the TH in no time.
