Ascent Trip Report

Climbed Blue Job to relocate a Geocache that we had left 2 years ago on the side of the mountain because the website would not list it, as they claimed it was too close to another. We located our Geocache and were surprised to see that a lot of people had stumbled across it by accident. So we left it where it was and had a splendid hike back over Little Blue Job. The sky was perfectly clear and we had a great view of Mount Washington and Monadnock.

Hiking from Scruton road is ok with the land owners apparently, as long as you don't block the driveway. Little Blue Job has a way better view than Blue Job anyway...
