Well we headed off from other trip reports going up to East Kineo from the 7,8,9 Road which was a great way to grab this peak for sure. We then took a right on Weir 7 Rd until we hi an experiment "more shit" was the name of the game today in the bitter cold when the wind hit us. We started to follow the yellow blazed trail and then took the left blazed trail up and up to some more "shit" aka experiment. Once we got here we continued up until we ended at some more experiments. We then had to bushwhack in a little scruff for a minute and then hit the highpoint at the canister on the rock. We took a line from here and headed over to the height of land on mt kineo trail. We ended up popping back onto the yellow blazed cut road which we decided to follow for a little but. Once the road started to head too far down we decided to go back into the woods which was the hobble bush trying to trip us for a little. We did skit a bump or two on the way there but bad it to the height of land with some following of orange surveyor tape at times (experiments were everywhere). Once we hit the height of land we followed the pink flagging for the experiments and found lots of trees tagged for their studies. After we followed that til it ended we then headed for the peak. We skirted a bump or two on the way and then started our way to the top. There seemed to be a slight herd path to the summit once close which swung around to the left before hitting the summit canister. There was a slight view but it was so windy with snow blowing we didn't have much to see. Once we hit that we followed our footprints back to the height of land as there was about 1" of snow on the ground. We then took the trail down and walked back to our cars. Nice brisk day out with a great crew.
