Ascent Trip Report

Came up from the Hurricane parking area, hitting a ridge on the east side of the peak. Pretty straightforward, and there's a couple nice ledges that look toward Knob Lock and Lake Champlain on the route, which is more than can be said for the summit. Quite a bit of blowdown the whole way, and that combined with the thickish spruce and tree nurseries in parts make this a slow go. No views that I could find from the summit, which is flat and treed.
Overall very similar to its neighbor, Green.
