My Dad and I climbed this and thoroughly enjoyed the glorious fall foliage. I'll scan and submit the pictures I have if I can find them.

Last day of a great trip. It was foggy and I hardly had a view. I loved the notch.

Started hiking up the AT via the Eyebrow Spur. It took 3 hours to reach the summit. It was a tough hike up. The views from the lookout tower were magnificent. Mahoosuc Notch was very visible as well as the rocky upper sections of Baldpate. I spent over an hour at the summit. For the trip down, I hiked the old Link trail down the NE ridge. It was hardly a trail--It reminded me more of an Adirondack unmaintained herd path. The views on the open rock slabs were nice, but many cripplebrush sections of the upper trail are overgrown. It was certainly an adventure. I definitely recommend this peak as a very enjoyable hike.

It was great to finally reach this summit after the Mashoosucs wore us down. The entire range is spectacular. The climb up from Speck Pond on the exposed shoulder of Old Speck was something else.

Much better trip this time (see earlier summit log entry). They've built an observation tower on the summit now and the views are spectacular. Continued on down lovely open rock ridge to the wonderful Speck Pond (surely one of the best high-altitude ponds in the Whites) for a nice dinner, and an evening stroll around the lake. Several thru-hikers about, nearing the end of their trip. Good luck all.

This was my first time up Speck before they built the tower. Views from summit were so-so. Still some snow in places. Descended the northeast spur off the summit following a trail on the AMC maps. Quickly became a gnarly bushwhacking expedition and I finished the descent on a knee-killing old fire trail straight down the stream drainage to the road.
