Comments
Comments: the trail, which follows a road, was well packed by foot traffic and snowmobiles. we followed the trail to around 2400 on the north side of "wozniak" and bushwhacked straight up in open woods to the recognized highpoint. snow was firm and supportive. heading to jobs we encountered a long band of cliffs above the col and had to hike a bit east to try to get around them. zach spotted a good line down through a couple smalls sets of cliffs and we were able to drop down without going all the way to the bald col. we then hiked along the ridge, over one minor bump, in open woods to the recognized summit of jobs. the east side of the peak is all cliffs and we got a nice view east towards seneca, east, percys, etc. we followed our tracks back to the base of "wozniak" and opted to wrap around its west side, above the col with bald, to reconnect with the mad brook trail a bit west of where we started the bushwhack.
