Ascent Trip Report

Started at the North Adams YMCA on my bike. Took Main st to Notch Rd. After about 4.4 mi / 1550 ft climb my derailleur got all bent out of shape. I stashed the bike in the woods and up the road 0.4 mi and got onto the AT. I took that over Williams and to Greylock. There were wet fall leaves and mud until the climb to Williams where it became more slushy and snowy. Ice and snow up top with rime ice on the Greylock tower. I took the road and then the AT back down, cutting across to Notch rd, a trail which was unbroken at the time. I jogged / hiked down to my bike stash and then rolled back to the YMCA since pedaling wasn't really possible.
