Route: Ski trails, access road

Started at the Crotched Mountain East parking lot and followed a grassy road to the old base area (rather wet). Hopped on the old T-Bar line, which is maintained for backcountry skiing. T-Bar line was dry and very smooth going.

From the top of the T-Bar, I hopped on the upper part of the gravel access road, which I followed to the summit.
