Ascent Trip Report

Warm, sunny day. Started at Denning at 9 AM and hiked first up to Black Dome, then further West to Thomas Cole (no view) and then backtracked to Black Dome and had lunch at the viewpoint - met two other hikers and we looked at the Indian Head Range to the South. Then hiked back down to the trail junction and up to Blackhead (not much of a view) and then decided to hike down the Escarpment (steep) and Batavia Kill trails back to Denning at 2:45 PM.
