    Great view at top and amazing song birds in the woods. Saw some moose scat. BUT this is not moderate from Kidney pond to peak, it is hard. It is basically rock climbing the last 400-600 feet of elevation. (the "other app" shows I "hiked" (more like rock climbed) a 60% grade in the final ascent) On the day I hiked I did not feel comfortable going back DOWN to Kidney pond on the wet rocks, so I changed plans mid-hike and made it a through hike to Nesowednunk campsite which was a much easier descent.
