Ascent Trip Report

Left the Loj around 7:30 am. Made good time out to Marcy Dam. As we reached the dam it started raining lightly. The rain came and went as we ascended up the Van Hoevenburg trail. We reached the beginning of the unmaintained Table Top trail around 10 am. It took us another 2.5 hours to do the last 1/2 mile to the summit as the trail was very difficult! Not much of a view from the summit but there was a good place to sit just beyond the summit. Had views towards Mt. Marcy but it was in the clouds that day. Return trip to the Loj was uneventful.
