Ascent Trip Reportperfect weather day.
Trip started on Chimney Pond Trail to Chimney Pond then up Cathedral Trail.....to summit of Baxter. From there we did the Knife Edge, up the Chimney and down into the Devil's Crotch.
From there we ascended Pamola peak and finished up with a descent down Heylon trail.
round trip was 9.5 miles
elevation gain....must have been close to 5000 or even 6000 feet overall because the first leg from trailhead to baxter peak was 4000 elevation gain just for that section.
