Apologies in advance for leaning on y'all and not doing more research, but we'll be in the Saranac area in early September (like, 48 hours from now). Last weekend we climbed Ampersand in the rain,...

Was there in early August. Portaged out via the longer unmarked portage from the unnamed pond north of Pink. On the way back we took the creek but regretted it, had to get out and line the canoe.
