Ascent Trip Report

hiked to the chin, thunderstorm drove me off the peak and down the wrong trail, had to re climb the mountain from the base again

overall it is a nice peak, nothing in the Adirondacks ive climbed compare to how hard the trails are

laura cowles and halfway house are steep trails, manageable but difficult

will return to climb it again in decent weather(i can do without exploding trees), as the occasional beak in the clouds gave great views
