Ascent Trip ReportLeaving the car parked at the shoulder of Little Bald, I walked the road to where the road crosses over the gap between Little Bald and Rich. Bushwhacked the gentle slope up the Northeast spur, which becomes the eastern end of the ridge. Plenty of briars, but you can mostly evade them by walking around to the right.
There are remains of a cabin and probably a fire tower. I found the geodetic survey marker, on a rock at the highest point. This is rare for me.
