AMC route is a fun alpine climb in a beautiful spot. Nice gneiss rock, lots of rappel anchors and short walk to the summit and down to the pond for a nice 5hr loop.
Boyd Road out of Weld, ME. Well marked trailheads with parking
Defined climbers trail leads to AMC route 5.6...stiff little bulge gets you warmed up for wet ledges. The route finding wasn't obvious so we meandered around and finished up an easy knife edge arete. I still can't tell from the photos where we climbed. There are a ton of nice rock faces all over the mountain. 3-4 pitches. Descent via the summit trail and down to the pond and Broad Brook trail, makes a nice loop. You can also rappel the route or descend via the loop trail or the rough looking trail up the gully next to the AMC route.
Zig zags a bit so some long runners would help with rope drag. Easy protection with a bunch of stoppers and a few cams. Two ropes if you want to rappel.
