Looking down the Black Cap Connector
Route: Black Cap Trail, Black Cap Connector
With Hurricane Mountain Road open, I opted to go for a quick jog to Black Cap. For jogging, I decided to avoid the minor scrambles of the upper Black Cap Trail by taking the Black Cap Connector for the final portion of the ascent, resulting in fairly gentle grades.
Though clouds were moving into the region, the views from the summit were still quite good, as the Presidentials were still in the clear. Surprisingly, there were no bugs to contend with.
