The way up the Abol trail was indeed very steep, involving a lot of boulder scrambling up an old slide path. The day was super hot and super humid, and we were all dripping in sweat in no time. The views off in the distance were limited even though it was mostly clear.

We eventually reached the edge of the broad flat expanse of the Katahdin Tablelands. Very beautiful bit of Alpine Tundra up there! It was only a short, relatively gentle climb to the summit from here!
