Ascent Trip Report

After work climb good weather and stumbled around exploring up there. Not a fan of the TCT or side trails markings, i guess i am spoiled by DEC trail marking which are always more frequent and visable. Side trail was not marked all the way to summit but easy to figure out. Wish we headed over to berlin but it was getting dark. I almost got killed in the passenger seat by a leaping deer due to maniac driver exceeding speed limit on backwater country roads. Images of my life flashed in front of me, just like in the movies. The driver shall rename nameless, but you know who you are.
