“The west side of Kinsman is a bit shorter than its east side but with similar overall grade.  A shallow start gradually gets more challenging as you head east.  A rock wall soon appears to your right which adds a somewhat alpine feel to the scenery of the climb which is quite good already.  Near the top the slope eases back and the listed climb ends at an unmarked top as the grade flattens out with a small lake to your right.” (This quote is presented with the approval of John Summerson, from his book, The Complete Guide to Climbing (by Bike) in the Northeast, pg. 100.)
