Comments: from the boat launch it was probably a 10 minute walk south on rt 3 to where we jumped off to the northwest of the peak. we followed a line up towards the peaks northern saddle where we hit a nice old logging cut with great views towards deer mountain and perry ponds peak. snow was firm and the going was fast through open woods. from the saddle up to the summit the going remained nice for a bit with tighter spruce taking over around 2700'. some very prominent boundary markings in this area. we then made our way towards the highpoint in fairly thick woods though not too bad as the trees were not currently snow loaded. it seems that historically finding a recognized highpoint on this one has eluded many hikers. we found the jar i had hung in december of 2015, after finding nothing on that trip, then maybe 30 yards west found another put up shortly before that with some older materials in it. cold hands precluded consolidation so someone may want to do so on a future visit. we then followed our tracks back out. nice last minute hike decision after already descending from the main peak made for a bit of extra vertical, but was worth it.
