Ascent Trip Report

A stiff climb from Rte 2, with hand-hold rope railings along steepest section of trail in the ledges below summit; took long way back exploring the trails and at final trail junction mistook (unposted) drive to parking area for trail, so retraced steps along Metacomet-Monadnock Tr to previous bridge and junction where Red Dot Tr continues west to Link Tr Jct and another route to descent, met no one rock climbing or otherwise though trail parking was near to filled.
