There are actually a series of open rock areas on the north summit, each with a better view than the previous. Here is the view towards the Dix Range in the High Peaks as well as Camel and Camels Hump.
Early fall colors in the middle of August! We were both astonished.
The descent was steady and steep but fairly uneventful. Hiked about 8 miles RT with about 2150 feet elevation gain.
