|Lost and Found:
||I started by hiking nobo on the AT from East B Hill Road. I bushwhacked up to the recognized high point of Wyman, finding mixed woods with thick low growth and some spruce, but nothing bad.|
I continued to the Hall shelter and bushwhacked up towards Hall from the View spur. On the far east shoulder (two full contors shy of the highpoint) I found a recognized point from 1997, which had not been signed since 2003. However, the pill bottle broke when I twisted it open, so I moved the contents to the actual highpoint, which I found to also be recognized.
I took the same way out to Surplus Pond, climbed over the bump just west of the pond, and launched a bushwhack on the 2661 peak to the north. Some thick going around the top and lots of low-growth on the way up. I visited the highpoint with the spot elevation and many points around the other bump, which would average to 2670. I found nothing recognized and chose to recognize the one with the spot.
