Ascent Trip Report

Eric and I left his house at first light (20 degrees) and headed to the southwest side of Camels hump. Parked at the Burrows trailhead and were on the trail by 8 AM. Eric used running shoes with "an aggresive tread" and I went with Jalas (spiked orienteering shoes). We were hoping that it wouldn't be too icy. The first mile or so was great, then it was a mix of snow and icy spots but nothing too bad. We hit the top in 53 minutes and stayed on top taking pictures for 6 minutes. We were very cautios on the descent which ended up taking us anoather 1:01 (total time = 2:00:35). Conditions were great! No wind at all and temps in the teens. We passed one hiker on the way up and there were about 15 people headed up as we ran down. Perfect morning for me to get my final county high point in Vermont!
