|Lost and Found:
||This is a very nice trail in a remote part of ME. Very nice summit too. |
From the summit, I decened a short distance on the trail and then began to bushwhack towards the col and up to number 6. The Bushwhacking was thick at times, but never too bad. From the col, I climbed up to the scree slope, which offered good views and walking, though the rocks could be shifty. From the scree, I had to pick my way up steeps and around cliffs, soon reaching the summit. I found nothing recognized, but recognized a point near the spot elevation. On the way back I took a similar route, though I went a bit further south, which resulted in some tough scambles.
